Lunch and laughs in the home of a trusted volunteer
Enjoy a home-cooked meal, fun and friendship at one of our regular lunch groups
Are you tired of looking at the same four walls? Sick of daytime television? Would you like to make new friends, and boost your social life?
When you join one of Age UK Sutton's lunch groups you'll enjoy a hot, home-cooked meal in the company of new friends, chat up a storm and play games like Scrabble, dominoes or cards.
A majority of lunch groups are hosted by trusted volunteers, who are looking forward to welcoming you into their homes. We ensure all our Homeshare volunteers are DBS-vetted, reference checked and have undergone a home assessment to make sure their home is safe and suitable for hosting lunch groups.
We take great care in matching clients with groups, taking into account interests, hobbies and location so we can create a good fit.
"Once everyone arrives, we have a good talk before lunch. We're all friends and everyone is interested in what others have to say...Forthose few hours we're together, we're all part of a family."
- MH, Homeshare volunteer
Lunch groups run weekly, on various days and in various locations across Sutton. If you are interested in being part of a group, please use the contact details below to get in touch.

Volunteer to be a lunch group host
You may be interested in opening your home to a small group of older people. Can you share your home a day a week or once a fortnight? It will make a big difference to lonely older people, who value the chance to meet new friends in a secure, more personal environment.
Homeshare volunteers receive expenses, and we will be on hand to provide continuous support. Please click on the link below to submit an online volunteer application, or talk to someone about volunteering for Homeshare.
