Service summary

Contact the Elderly is a national organisation which changes the lives of people aged 75 and over who live alone and cannot get out on their own.  Many people aged 75 and over spend the majority of their days by themselves.  If this sounds like you, then we can help you to get out of the house and back in touch with your local community. 


Contact the Elderly offers a lifeline of friendship to thousands of people aged 75 and over. One Sunday afternoon a month, each local group meets for tea, cake and company.  Hosts take it in turns to welcome you and the rest of the group into their homes for a few hours, and drivers always make sure you get home safely.
