Contact the Elderly is actively seeking volunteer drivers and especially hosts for Forfar, Kirriemuir, Tealing, and Montrose. These Groups are needing second Groups due to demand. Brechin now has two Groups and is really needing a third.
Carnoustie has space for more guests and hosts.
Contact the Elderly who aim to alleviate loneliness in older people through free monthly afternoon teas are urgently needing hosts in the Carnoustie/Monifieth area. Hosts are asked to provide a simple afternoon tea once a year for a small group of lonely older people. Teas can take place in the host’s home or could be provided by an organisation or business. The teas are held on a Sunday afternoon from 2-4.00p.m. and the guests are collected and accompanied by a volunteer driver. All guests have to be able to manage two or three steps with just a steadying arm as we do not undertake any caring duties. The monthly outings make a huge difference to our guests as they enjoy chatting and making new friends as well as eating cake. I would urge you to consider volunteering with us, it does not involve a great deal of your time but you will find it very worthwhile.
