How we help
Enabling independent lives
We’re here to help people keep leading independent, healthy and happy lives, by offering a helping hand where it’s needed. Our volunteers offer practical support by taking care of the things the people we serve are less able to do for themselves, like shopping or getting to and from social activities.
Volunteers also provide social and emotional support, just by being there in person or on the phone once or twice a week. Sometimes that also means organising, running or simply attending local classes in anything from Tai Chi to IT.
It’s all about giving people the support they need to stay, safe, well and connected to their communities.
