About Royal Voluntary Service, formerly WRVS

Royal Voluntary Service is a volunteer organisation that enriches the lives of older people and their families across Britain.

We support older people by giving time and practical help to help them get the best from life. Our volunteers – ordinary men and women of all ages and ethnicities – love spending time with the older people. Through them, we want to help create a society where everyone feels valued and involved whatever their age.

We believe old age should be celebrated, and so we should: we’re 75 years old and still going strong. So, find out today what we can do for you or an older person in your family.
