Would you be able to spare a couple of hours once or twice a year to enjoy a cup of tea with an older person? We’re looking for local people to host tea parties to help reduce loneliness and build social connections. Isolation and Loneliness are on the rise especially with Older People in the Aberdeen Community. We are looking for friendly and caring people to help with our tea parties. Could you help serve refreshments and friendly conversation from the comfort of your own home? You will only be hosting once or twice a year, so this is perfect for fitting around your own availability and lifestyle. All our guests are driven to your home by volunteer drivers, and you will be led by our tea party volunteer coordinator. Normally your tea party will last for about 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon. It is the same local group you host so you can make some real connections to your community and the Older Guests. All training is remote, and you are supported by our team and Tea Party Co-ordinator in your role. A fantastic, enjoyable volunteer opportunity where you will make a real difference. All help is greatly appreciated. For more information please contact Esther Lynn, Engagement Officer at email: or telephone: 020 8017 8234.
