Our first group was launched in Westminster in 1965 and we now have 620 groups across England, Scotland and Wales with 5,000 older guests and 8,500 volunteers. Our volunteers welcome their guests into their homes every month and ensure the tea parties are a cheerful social occasion where guests can spend the afternoon together, talking, laughing and sharing stories.
Grants from trusts and foundations are a vital source of support for us. Their support allows us to develop new groups in deprived areas and to sustain our existing groups.
For us to meet the challenges faced by an increasingly ageing population we hope to foster new relationships with trusts and foundations in the coming years and continue to nurture the longstanding and committed relationships we currently enjoy.
