Coronavirus Pandemic - we are still here for you

As a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic, all existing social and activity groups run by the charity have been put on hold until further notice but we have adapted our services to continue offering emotional and practical help to older people locally during this difficult time;

We are offering:

  • Information and Advice: Including information on social care, housing and welfare benefits.
  • Telephone befriending: A friendly chat if you’re feeling lonely or isolated.
  • Doorstep Deliveries: We can deliver groceries (subject to availability) and essential medication to your doorstep, as well as knitting kits, CDs/DVDs, books and jigsaws to stave off boredom.
  • Welfare and Safety Support. Helping the most vulnerable with tasks such as cleaning, shopping and laundry, as well as offering respite for carers.
  • Wellbeing advice. We can share information on healthy living, nutrition, hydration and exercises that can take place in the home or garden.    

If you’d like to access any of the services above, or you’re worried about an older friend or family member at this time, please call us on 01403 260 560 or email

Help at home

Help at home

We can provide reliable sources of help and support around your home and garden, so you can continue to stay independent in your own home. We carry out a free no obligation home visit to discuss your needs.

A free service supporting older people and adults over 18 who live alone, following a hospital stay. Support is also available for friends and family.

Are you, or is someone you know over 50 and looking for that little bit of extra support?
