Make a one-off donation


Make a regular monthly donation


Making a donation to Royal Voluntary Service today will help us reach more older people in need of support and companionship, overcoming the loneliness that affects almost three quarters of older people in the UK.

Two fifths of all older people (about 3.9 million) say that television is their main company.

Each month our amazing 20,000 volunteers help 100,000 older people. Whether it’s through offering practical support after a hospital stay,  helping out  at one of our  sociable lunch clubs or through simply popping round for a cuppa and a chat with someone who’s often at home alone.

It can be the little things in life that matter most. Regular visits from one of our volunteers could be the difference between someone continuing to live independently or having to be cared for.

Our volunteers generously give their time to help older people, but we can’t recruit and train volunteers without donations from people like you.

Our fundraising promise is your guarantee that:

  • We will be open and honest with you, and tell you how your gifts are used.
  • We comply with all data protection legislation and will never sell or share your data with other charities.
  • We will respect your privacy and promise only to contact you as often as you like.
