Contact the Elderly Tea Party Amersham

Contact the Elderly is the only national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among older people.
Supported by a network of volunteers, the charity organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people, aged 75 and over, who live alone. Offering a regular and vital friendship link every month.
Each older person is collected from their home by a volunteer driver and taken to a volunteer host’s home for the afternoon. The group is warmly welcomed by a different host each month, but the drivers remain the same which means that over the months and years, acquaintances turn into friends and loneliness is replaced by companionship.
Guests are not expected to host any of the tea parties and the service is free
If you are interested in joining a group in Amersham then please go to or, if you would like to talk to someone about joining a group, please call Contact The Elderly on 0800 716 543 or the Regional Development Officer Suzan Hyland on  0207 420 5811
