At Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) we’re supporting T.E.D to improve the lives of older people in East Lindsey.

There are many ways you can get involved in supporting older people as a volunteer helping to ease isolation, increase activity and keep older people involved and engaged in their communities. You can do this by working directly with older people or by supporting the organisations that work with older people in another way.

Below are just a few examples of some of the organisations supporting older people in East Lindsey and roles they recruit volunteers to.
