Falmouth Age Concern

Charity description

Falmouth Age Concern logo
Falmouth Age Concern is a small independent charity based in Falmouth. We operate in Falmouth, Penryn and the surrounding villages. We have our own Committee and Trustees and raise all our own funds. We are not part of Age UK (the national charity) but do work closely with Age UK in Cornwall.

We run a befriending service for elderly and disabled lonely older people. Our volunteers visit these elderly clients in their homes for an hour a week to have a chat and help them feel less isolated. We run a telephone befriending service for those harder to reach or who prefer this type of contact.We run some clubs - art, film, reading, walking, games - engaging our clients to take part in social activities.We take our clients out on excursions.Our service was set up to alleviate loneliness amongst older people in our area and we currently visit around 60 older people in their homes each week.We rely on raising funds through grants and donations to ensure we can continue with our services
