Volunteer Host for tea parties/social gathering

Hosts needed in Whitby, Middlesbrough and York

Once a month, normally on a Sunday afternoon, each older guest is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home, where they join a small group for tea, cake and companionship.

Skills or experience required?:

We all have different reasons for getting involved but a lot of our volunteers have or have had older people in their lives who have brought them joy or who have experienced loneliness.

Other volunteers are feeling the twinge of loneliness themselves as they settle into a new area, a new job, a new set of circumstances.

Whatever your reason, we are here to make sure that all our volunteers are fully equipped to support the +8,400 older people who attend our monthly gatherings across the United Kingdom.
