Mission

No older person should be alone on Christmas Day unless they want to be

Partner organisations

Our Partners

We are actively working with a number of organisations who share our concern about older people and our communities. If you are involved with an organisation which has synergy with us then please contact us to discuss how we might be able to work together.

Contact the Elderly


Contact the Elderly is dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among older people through face to face contact.

Supported by a network of volunteers, the charity organises social gatherings for small groups of older people, aged 75 and over, who live alone. Offering a regular and vital friendship link every month.

Contact the Elderly is working in partnership with Community Christmas to ensure that no older person is alone on Christmas day unless they want to be. Another step to providing a real lifeline of friendship for older guests who have little or no contact with family or friends.
