Help older people

Royal Voluntary Service has more than 35,000 volunteers who help support older people all over the country to stay independent at home and active in their communities.  

It's that practical little bit of help that makes all the difference – whether at home, getting them to where they want to go, bringing people together through social activities or supporting them in hospital or in an emergency.

Our overriding aim is to provide the support that enables older people to live independent and fulfilled lives – we want everybody to matter, regardless how old they are.

We cover all of Britain and offer a wide range of services to older people and their families. We’ll work with you to find out what you need to make life easier or happier.

Contact your local Royal Voluntary Service and we’ll do our best to provide the help and support you need for yourself or a loved one.
