Contact the Elderly is a small national charity with branches in Hackney that aims to alleviate the loneliness and social isolation experienced by older people living in Hackney who live alone with little or no support from family or friends and who can no longer get out on their own. We are a registered charity that cares about lonely elderly people in Hackney.

 

Our local group in the Hackney area needs volunteer drivers to pick up 1-2 older people from their home one Sunday afternoon a month and take them to a host family for an afternoon tea. It doesn’t matter how big your car is, as long as you are reliable and can commit yourself to a few hours each month.

Do you have a decent sized kitchen, lounge or garden in the Hackney Borough? And can you spare just one Sunday afternoon a year?

 

Contact The Elderly are also looking for volunteer hosts who would enjoy organising a social afternoon/ tea party in their home. All you need is easy access into your house or flat, a downstairs toilet and seating for about 6-8 elderly people. 

 

Please think about joining us. All of our volunteers can vouch for the pleasure these outings give to the older people - and to themselves.


 

Contact The Elderly is a national registered charity no. 244681 with 300 groups – 60 of those in London.

“You have no idea what it means to me.  I'm beginning to feel human again.  Contact the Elderly is easily the best charitable organisation I know of for lonely people such as myself.   For a small group of people to meet in someone's home…it makes me feel as if I belong to a family.  I've lived alone for over 40 years and miss all my friends and relatives so much.   Bless you all for your kindness and thought for those who are all alone.”
