What we do

  • We give advice

    Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In 2017 our advisers helped local older people to claim over £1.9m that they were entitled to.

  • We offer home help

    Home support services help our clients with shopping, cleaning, companionship, appointments, hobbies and light gardening. We currently support over 900 older people to stay independent in their own homes.

  • We befriend

    Our volunteer telephone befrienders made over 15,600 calls in 2017 to over 300 older people who would otherwise be alone.

  • We provide activities

    We provide a wide range of  activities and  groups and events, such as lunch clubs and exercise classes, giving older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill.
