Volunteer Hosts – Epping

Contact the Elderly

If you enjoy tea and cake and would like to help make a difference in your local community, then look no further!

Contact the Elderly organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for isolated older people who live alone and find it difficult to get out and about by themselves.

Each older person is collected from their home each month by a volunteer

driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home where they meet with a small group for tea, chat and companionship.

We are looking for volunteer hosts to hold a tea party for the local group just once or twice a year on a Sunday afternoon.

All we ask of our volunteer hosts is that they have a big teapot, a warm heart and the facility to seat 6-8 older guests comfortably. The volunteer drivers (approx. 3-4) will also join and assist you at the tea party.

Our monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties are a vital lifeline for our older guests, and our volunteer hosts often say that they genuinely get as much enjoyment from the gatherings as the older people do, and lasting friendships are formed.

Skills required

Due to the mobility needs of our older guests, hosts are required to have an easily accessible home with fewer than three steps, and a downstairs toilet.

We are looking for friendly sociable hosts, who are happy to welcome people into their home. Becoming a volunteer host is the perfect volunteering opportunity for those who enjoy baking (but shop bought cakes are fine!) and would like to

make a difference to the lives of lonely older people.

With such a small time commitment, our volunteering opportunities are perfect for those who lead busy lives.
