Our voluntary Get Together hosts are a brilliant gang. A whole range of different backgrounds and ages, each individual is with us for a different reason but all with the same aim – to help us continue to reduce social isolation is Islington’s over 55s.

Our Get Together hosts meet and greet people at our Get Togethers, build brilliant and lasting relationships with our  clients and make new friends themselves. They get the chance to explore Islington, with trips on the Angel Boats, to wandering nature parks, trying experimental food, playing table tennis, cards and more!

Our clients really value our volunteer hosts, as they get to know them over the weeks, months and years of regular contact creating a very special Age UK Islington.

If you would like to find out more about volunteering with us call Activities Manager Ellie Shipman on 0207 281 6018.
