Contact the Elderly North Wales helps to relieve the loneliness of housebound older people who live alone. They do this through recruiting volunteer drivers who each pick up 1 or 2 elderly people from their homes. They take them to the home of a volunteer host where the volunteers and older people spend a few hours together with afternoon tea, usually on a Sunday. Each group normally meets once a month, welcomed into the homes of different hosts. More volunteer drivers and hosts are urgently needed to join new local groups.
