National - Britain


A highly regarded national charity with over 75 years of proud history, we are dedicated to helping older people across Britain stay active and independent.  Each month, Royal Voluntary Service helps 100,000 people to stay independent in their own homes.  We offer practical help that can make all the difference - whether it's getting a lift to the shops, providing hot meals, collecting something like a library book or providing friendly company to break up the day.


We currently have approximately 450 community centres and lunch clubs, 50 community transport schemes and over 500 cafes, shops and trolley services in hospitals.  In all the support we offer is personal, practical and preventative; it is designed to allow older people to live independent and fulfilled lives.
