Contact the Elderly

Contact the Elderly is the only national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation amongst older people through regular face-to-face contact. Supported by a network of volunteers, the charity organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people, aged 75 and over, who live alone.

Thanks to its volunteers, Contact the Elderly hosts hundreds of groups meeting every month across England, Scotland and Wales, offering a regular and vital friendship link to older people whilst bringing people of different ages together. Our Awards are designed to recognise the volunteer drivers, hosts and ambassadors who make these events a reality and promote the charity’s work.
