This weekly group can accommodate up to 25 people for lunch and social activities, the members look forward to the get together’s and enjoy seeing the friends they have made.

Volunteer Drivers Wanted in Lichfield!

Help older people in your community maintain their independence by transporting our Live at Home members to local venues for activities and appointments.
