Contact The Elderly

Objectives of the Organisation

Contact the Elderly is a charity dedicated to running tea party groups for isolated older guests aged 75 and over, who live alone (including in sheltered accommodation).

Guests are collected from their door by the same volunteer driver each month and taken to Sunday afternoon tea in a volunteer hosts home. The group of guests and drivers are the same each month, which means that over time some lovely friendships develop, and new support networks are formed.

The service is completely free, groups are overseen by a volunteer coordinator, and all drivers are DBS and reference checked, as well as being briefed on our health and safety and safeguarding procedures.

Volunteers Required

Were hoping to launch a new group in Harpenden shortly, however we are short of volunteers.
