Elder Tree Befriending is a local charity. We work in close partnership with Plymouth City Council and Livewell South West and our main aim is to prevent loneliness and support socially isolated and vulnerable older people to continue to live independently in their own homes.
We are one of the largest volunteer organisations in the country. Our 25,000 volunteers help older people stay active, independent and able to continue to contribute to society. They do this by providing practical and emotional help where and when it's needed.
Sing For Your Life South West is a registered charity who support the health and wellbeing of older people using participatory musical activities, particularly singing. Sing for Your Life delivers a range of programmes to support people with long term health conditions.
START offers practical, social and emotional support in the form of information, advocacy and advice. Supporting refugees to settle in Plymouth and the far southwest.
The Prince's Trust supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Three in four young people supported by The Prince's Trust move into work, education or training.
Volunteering at Livewell Southwest can be a life changing experience, for you, those we support and our staff. By spending some time chatting with patients, supporting with administrative tasks, helping keep our gardens great or lending a hand with our training courses you'll be making an invaluable contribution to our work if you choose to volunteer with us.
