Why Volunteer?

There are hundreds of elderly people in and around Harrogate who feel lonely or isolated. With your help, we can continue to reduce this number.

As a charity, we rely on the generosity of the local community. Volunteers are a vital part of our team and without them, we would not be able to provide the level of service we do.

There are many ways volunteers can get involved.

  • Driving our minibus
  • Shopping trips
  • Delivering hot meals
  • Organising activities
  • Helping at events
  • Contributing professional skills


Volunteering can really make a difference to the lives of the elderly and it can make a difference to your life too. You get to do something valuable and give back to your community and you will also make new friends, have fun and meet some wonderful people.

If you have recently come out of education, cut down your working hours, retired or got more time on your hands then why not do something worthwhile? You will be surprised how much it can enrich your life.
