Fundraise for MHA Live at Home
Living in our own home is one way in which we maintain our independence. Yet really “living” is also about friendship and support, about being involved in our community, about getting out and about and simply enjoying ourselves. Sometimes, though, that is easier said than done.
Through local Live at Home schemes, MHA provides social contact and support for older people who wish to continue living at home but feel increasingly isolated. We enable people to live a more fulfilled life.
Live at Home was established over 25 years ago, today we operate nearly 80 community schemes throughout the country. Each one is different. It has its own manager and – crucially – a team of committed volunteers. Together they provide a wide range of activities:
- Befriending schemes and advocacy
- Telebuddies service
- Lunch clubs
- History and reminiscence groups
- Outings and holidays
Live at Home schemes are supported by MHA’s national staff team, which ensures that standards are maintained and training delivered to volunteers.
