Our goal

Our goal is to inspire and enable people to give the gift of voluntary service to meet the needs of the day in their communities. We believe that our volunteers’ service makes them, and Britain, healthier and happier.

We also work closely with the NHS, providing valuable support services that allow hardworking hospital staff time to focus on looking after the people in their care.

Working one-to-one, in groups and online, our network of trained volunteers provide the time and skills that help people feel stronger, healthier and more able to cope with any challenges they may be facing.

Through social activities and groups, they create connections and friendships that help communities thrive and boost the wellbeing of the people involved.

Our services vary from area to area and in some cases are available via your local authority or health services.
