RVS: Royal Voluntary Service (Grampian Services)

Charity registered in Scotland SC038924

Every day Royal Voluntary Service helps thousands of vulnerable people to live the life they want. We provide practical services in homes, in hospitals and in communities all across the country so people can be independent and active. Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest voluntary organisations and much of our work is supporting vulnerable aged 18+. We provide practical solutions to the everyday problems of loneliness and isolation.
