A lifeline of friendship
ELDERLY Kidderminster residents are being invited to join a leading national charity’s monthly tea parties.
Contact the Elderly, a charity dedicated to tackling loneliness and isolation among older people, are keen to raise awareness in the local community and are inviting residents to join their Kidderminster group.
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. Offering a regular and vital friendship link every month.
Each older person is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home for the afternoon. The 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.
Our tea parties are a real lifeline of friendship for our older guests who have little or no contact with family or friends. They bring people of all ages together, develop fulfilling friendships and support networks, and give everyone involved something to look forward to each month.
Those who are interested in joining the Kidderminster Contact the Elderly group can contact Pamela on 0121 6031331 or email email@example.com
