Civic Award

We have won a civic award from Barnet Council  for our work in the community. Derrick, our chair of trustees, responded with gratitude but said that the recognition of our work is more important than the award.

Lottery Grant- Reaching Communities

Great News! A big thank you to the Lottery’s ‘Reaching Communities’ Fund which has awarded our charity a substantial grant to help fund our lunch clubs for the next 5 years. This important scheme supports projects and organisations that work to make positive changes in their community.

Where people are lonely or housebound, we may be able to arrange a regular weekly or fortnightly visit from one of our volunteers. Find out more

Social Events and Outings

Join us on one of our special events that can include our regular bingo afternoons and trips to garden centres and places of interest.

Where the use of public transport is difficult for regular clients: senior citizens who routinely use our services. We can provide transportation by minibus to some of our events, such as the lunch clubs. Volunteer drivers also are available to give lifts in their own vehicles to hospitals and GP surgeries.  Find out more

Our service  is designed to keep older people mobile by doing regular nail cutting, treating corns and removing hard skin. Find out more
