Our partnership with Zurich’s Community Trust started in 2001 with the Trust's support of Live Choices.

The Live Choices project was designed to address some of the issues of social isolation which led to homelessness among older people in London's East End.

In 2005 the partnership launched the hugely-successful Call in Time volunteering programme.

Call in Time is a national telephone befriending service where volunteers call their older friend on a regular basis. Since 2005, the programme has provided a lifeline to hundreds of older people.

The Trust have been actively involved in developing the programme and by working closely with Age UK, have gained valuable expertise and knowledge which supports their wider giving programme.

Find out more about the Call in Time programme.
