About the Organisation
Contact the Elderly aims to relieve the acute loneliness and isolation of people over the age of 75 who live alone. We do this by organising monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people and volunteers within their local community.
We run local groups throughout England, Wales and Scotland and our service is FREE.
Each older person is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home for the afternoon. The group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the drivers remain the same which means that over the months and years, acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship.
