We simply couldn’t do what we do without the amazing support of our volunteers across the UK

Studies show that volunteering can improve both your mental and physical health, boost self-esteem and help you become more socially connected.

Why volunteer with us

92% of our volunteers feel that they are giving something back

89% feel happier as a result of being involved

77% have made friends with the older guests in their group

Coronavirus update

In normal times, we run over 900 social groups and other activites for isolated older people with over 12,000 volunteers running and supporting those groups. We'll let you know when we will start those activities up again - as soon as it is safe to do so.
