Contact the Elderly, Scotland (VC)
Created/last updated: 13/03/2018
Aims and objectives
Contact the Elderly relieves the isolation and loneliness of people of 75 and over, who live alone without friends and family nearby, by organising Sunday afternoon tea parties which provide a regular and vital friendship link.
One Sunday a month, volunteer drivers use their cars to collect older people from their homes and take them to volunteer hosts’ homes, where everyone enjoys the welcome and warmth of simple friendship. Volunteers and older guests alike, enjoy spending time together chatting over a home-made afternoon tea. Each group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the drivers remain the same which means that over the months and years, acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship.
