Get involved - Volunteer!

Whether it's an hour every week or once a year, whatever you can spare we'll value your time! Our volunteers and staff help 1,200 older people every week by providing companionship, advice and support and we're in contact with over 5,000 older people and their families every year. It’s only with your help that we can continue to make such a big difference.

"It's one of the best things I’ve ever done – it's a great joy, a great pleasure!"
