Contact the Elderly is currently running a Power of Contact campaign to encourage volunteers to sign up to make a difference in the life of a socially isolated older person. The charity is concerned by what appears to be indifference by the current government over the rapidly growing numbers of neglected and isolated older people.
Chairman Trevor Lyttleton MBE says, “We know our formula of tea and conversation works, but we simply cannot reach out to the people that desperately need our help without increased volunteers and funding.”
More information about the campaign is available here, and to donate via text, text POWR15 and the donation amount to 70070. And if you’re on Twitter, please use #PowerOfContact
