How we are funded

We rely on your support to keep serving the community. We are supported by donations from the public, service delivery and some charitable grants.

What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families on almost any subject. We also offer specialised Welfare Benefits advice. 

  • We offer home help

    Our friendly & trustworthy personal assistants can help you with a range of tasks including general housework, meal, shopping, outings and more.

  • We befriend

    Our Good Neighbour Scheme volunteers visit lonely older people in the community and offer friendship, support and reassurance for those with no-one else to turn to.

  • We provide activities

    We offer a range of groups and events, such as Active Network Social Clubs and Men in Sheds, which give older people the opportunity to take part in activities, socialise, or learn a new skill.
