Support at home
Royal Voluntary Service volunteers support thousands of older people every day to stay independent in their own homes and enrich their lives.
Whether it's Meals on Wheels, our Good Neighbours and befriending services, our home library services (also known as Books on Wheels) or lifts to and from hospital and GP appointments, we offer the practical help that can make all the difference.
Our Good Neighbours and befriending services not only provide much-needed social contact for older people, they also contribute to hospital avoidance, a major social good.
Good Neighbours services provide a little bit of support when it's needed.
Our home library services offer a vital link to the local library for older people who can't get out so often.
Meal on Wheels is vital for older people who have difficulty with shopping, carrying food home or cooking for themselves.
