Contact the Elderly


Contact the Elderly brings happiness and companionship back into the lives of older people suffering from loneliness and social isolation. We organise monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for people who are aged 75 and above who are living alone, with little contact with friends or family. The simple concept of a cup of tea and conversation helps the older guests to feel part of their community again, make new friends and gives them something to look forward to.

We currently have some vacancies for older guests in our Lewisham groups and are also planning to launch a new Lewisham group in the near future.

Here is some referrer information about our organisation. If you would like to refer someone to us, this can be done online via our website or by completing the application form and returning it to the address below. Alternatively you may wish to pass on the information for someone to contact us directly.

You can also use our digital leaflet to send to colleagues or contacts who may wish to make a referral.
