Already running in parts of east Brighton, we are very pleased to have been awarded Big Lottery funding to reach more people and expand what we do into Woodingdean, Ovingdean, Rottingdean and Saltdean.
Do you have a few hours spare to accompany an older person to their GP?
You could join our HealthLink scheme and accompany older people to GP surgeries, hospital appointments, dentists, health screenings and other important routine health appointments. HealthLink isn’t a transport scheme but your company and support can make getting to appointments much less stressful for older people.
“Without a HealthLink volunteer they probably wouldn’t have gone.”
If you are 18+ and would like to volunteer and are looking for something that doesn’t require a regular weekly commitment, then the HealthLink volunteer role could be just right for you! Please contact us for more information.

Have you got a skill or hobby you would like to share? As a volunteer-led project specifically for older people, our activities are organised by volunteers aged 50 or over. If you have a skill or hobby you would like to share, we can help you run an activity in your local area. We’ll give you the training and support you need. We have supported activities including computer lessons, ballroom dancing and meditation – creating a vibrant mix of volunteering opportunities and activities for older people.
As a volunteer, we’ll give you the training and support you need to get involved, help isolated and vulnerable older people be more active and get more out of life.
