Contact The Elderly UK

Charity registered in Scotland SC039377

Contact the Elderly is a national charity and organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people over 75 who live alone with little or no support from family and friends. One Sunday afternoon a month volunteers use their car to take older members to and from a volunteer host’s home for tea, cake and companionship. Hosts take it in turn to welcome the small group of older people and volunteer drivers into their home for a few hours.


Current opportunity

Drivers collect the same older guest/s each month and take them to a different local host's home where they all enjoy an afternoon tea party. There are usually three to five drivers in a group and there are sometimes also one or two reserve drivers to cover for holidays and emergencies. We ask our drivers to commit to three to four hours one Sunday a month and to contact their older guest/s a few days before the monthly tea party to make sure they know when they are going to pick them up.
