Contact the Elderly are spreading the word

Contact the Elderly would like your help! They are working hard to reach as many isolated and lonely older people in the North East of England. They want to keep on developing their groups for older people and signposting  them on to the services of relevant partners.

They are creating an up to date social media profile with a Facebook page and Twitter  account, to get the message out to new and existing volunteers and guests.

See the link below to the brand new and still developing Contact the Elderly North East Facebook page.

If you have Facebook – please visit the page and “like” and encourage anyone you know to do so too.

They’ll  be updating the page regularly, but would love to hear from you about any stories from groups, news you would like to share, or any suggestions for what you would like featured.

Partner organisations – please let them know if you would like to link up your page with ours – a great way to reach even more people


You can contact Valerie at  or their Communications volunteer Libby at  to discuss any content, suggestions or joint working.
