Royal Voluntary Service

Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest volunteer organisations in this country.

Our volunteers offer practical support and share time with older people at home, in hospitals and in the community.  They're there to help you get the best from life, and do it in ways that fit in with your lifestyle, needs and wishes.

They love sharing time with older people because it's enjoyable, rewarding and inspiring for all of us, young and old.
