Hosts needed for Contact the Elderly tea parties


Contact the Elderly is a national charity that helps reduce loneliness and social isolation through monthly tea parties. The charity has more than 400 local groups, each of which meet once a month in a volunteer host's home, for tea, cake and friendship. Each group has 5-10 older guests and a handful of volunteer drivers, who transport the guests to and from each tea party.

Contact the Elderly's Edgbaston group is urgently looking for additional hosts for 2019 - requirements include step-free (or minimal step) access, and the ability to host at least once during the year. All volunteers undergo DBS checks and generally live in the local area (for the Edgbaston group, hosts must live either in or within a few miles of, B29).
