You too can help to improve the special care we deliver to the most vulnerable people in the Irish community of south London.
You can volunteer your time and expertise in many ways ...
We need volunteers to befriend our pensioners living at home and those living in care homes. Over 60% of our pensioners live alone and most do not have family living close by so they really value company, be it over the phone or face to face.
We are always looking for people to help out with general administration, particularly our newsletters and leaflets as well as delivering them - if you're feeling fit!
You can volunteer to help out at one of our drop-ins in Brixton, New Cross or Bermondsey, help with our bigger functions such as our monthly tea dances or at our Christmas and St Patrick's Day events. We have a new Volunteer Programme which offers lots of opportunities for taking time out to visit our members, take them out to meet friends, go shopping or just to join in whatever local activities are offered in their locality. One to one support, however small, really makes a difference to their lives.
You can also donate to the charity and if you are a UK tax payer, we can claim 25% on every donation if you tick the gift aid box.
