What we do is only possible with your support.


If you would like to give a bit of your time to volunteer with one of our groups then we offer lots of ways to get involved.

We are looking for volunteers who can offer Residents living in the care homes we support friendship, social and recreational activities. You could be doing anything from sitting and chatting, to organising a coffee morning or a craft workshop to enabling a Resident to go out to their favourite fish and chip shop.

If you would like more information about volunteering with Friends of Care Homes please get in touch info@friendsofcarehomes.org.uk

You don’t need any experience, we’ll provide training and ongoing support. And you can commit to whatever amount of time suits you. Our volunteers gain new skills and experiences, and some great new friends, as well as giving much needed support to the Residents.


Become a Member

For an annual fee of £10 you can become a member of a Friends Group of your choice and you will be invited to events including our AGM (Annual General Meeting) and have voting rights – this means you will have a say on who is on the committee and the strategic direction of the group.

We need donations to make our activities possible, such as funds for plants for the garden project or funds to take residents out on trips. Every penny counts and we are extremely grateful for anything you can give. Or perhaps you would like to remember us as a legacy in your Will.
