Volunteer for Contact the Elderly

Thu 7 Feb 2019

Contact the Elderly is looking for volunteers to support their activities in Stoke-on-Trent.

Contact the Elderly is the national charity dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation amongst older people living in the United Kingdom. Their mission is to empower older people to make new social connections, and break out of the cycle of social isolation. Supported by a nationwide network of over 11,000 volunteers, Contact the Elderly organises free monthly social events for small groups of isolated older people through their local groups.

One volunteer role is to host an afternoon tea at your home. The visit usually takes place on a Sunday afternoon by prior arrangement with the Group Coordinator.  Many of the older group members rarely leave their home between monthly outings so this treat makes a real difference.
