Contact the Elderly

Name: Contact the Elderly

Summary: “Contact the Elderly” is a registered charity, founded by Trevor Lyttleton in 1965. For over 40 years Contact the Elderly groups around the country have been organising free tea parties for small groups of older people, aged 75 and above, who live alone and would appreciate some company on a Sunday afternoon.

In February 2012, Contact the Elderly had over 400 groups in England, Scotland and Wales, which provide a regular, consistent and vital friendship link every month to approximately 3,400 older people, aged 75 and above.

By 2015, the charity’s 50th anniversary, Contact the Elderly aims to increase the number of groups it operates to over 600, enabling the charity to support over 5,000 older people each month – with the support of a volunteer network of over 7,500 individuals.

Contact the Elderly works by a volunteer driver collecting older persons from their home by and taking them to a volunteer host’s home for the afternoon. A different host welcomes the guests each month but the drivers remain the same, which helps friendships develop.
