Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In accordance with the latest government announcement regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, users should be aware of the instruction to stay at home, and to only leave the house for food, health reasons or essential work. You should also stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people.

In light of this, the groups, clubs and societies listed within the Shropshire Community Directory will be unable to meet until further notice, and there may be a reduced service for other local and national organisations.

For further information, please contact the individual groups or organisations listed.

Contact the Elderly

Description:

Contact the Elderly aims to alleviate the isolation of lonely elderly people over 75 years old by organising monthly get-togethers at the home of a volunteer host.

Volunteer drivers collect one or two isolated older people locally, and together they travel to a volunteer host's house for Sunday afternoon tea.

Hosts need a downstairs toilet and easy access to their house. They would host once or twice a year.

Co-ordinators organise the monthly gatherings.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website.
