Get our community engagement guide

Our How To Guide will give care home managers and staff guidance on how to create a community within care homes. The guide will explain how to bring members of the local community into the home to volunteer, befriend, run activities and form friendship groups with your residents.

Volunteer with us

We are currently recruiting Community Connector volunteers to bring care homes and communities closer.

If you are a great networker and would like to play a role in linking members of the community into care homes we would like to hear from you. As a volunteer you can play an important role in helping residents remain part of their community and reduce feelings of loneliness.
