Would you like to help older people in Somerset and North Somerset?

Our normal requests for volunteers are on hold for now.  At this time we are working with other community organisations to ensure that every part of our area is able to offer support to the older people in their communities.  

If you can't volunteer, please could you donate?  Every penny will count.

  • Register to Volunteer

    Assistance is needed all across Somerset and North Somerset to ensure that our older people have everything they need during this difficult time.  This may include food, medicine or just being a friendly voice on the end of the phone to help prevent feelings of isolation.

    It is heart-warming to see the number of local groups that have sprung up so quickly.  Register here and we will either connect you to your nearest community group, or if one doesn't exist yet, we will contact you ourselves and use your help to ensure that no-one has no-one. 


    Thank you for playing your part.

  • Donate to our Appeal

    We want to make sure we can help all that need us, and be able to reassure the families, especially those who live outside the county, that we are doing all we can to protect and support their loved ones.

    Did you know that we are a local independent charity?  We have more than 180,000 older people in our area and we are responsible for raising our own funds.  With the sudden closure of our only paid-for services - our exercise classes and our toenail cutting service - we have lost much-needed income at a time of unprecedented demand.  This means that to keep vulnerable older people safe and well, we need your support and donations, however small.


    Thank you for playing your part.
