Volunteers - We are so thankful for all the incredible people that have stepped up to try and help in their community, we currently have over 4500 volunteers nationwide and this will only increase with the coronavirus outbreak.

Going Digital - Your donation will help us to transfer our services for online delivery as well as providing digital literacy development and education to our older community.
Chatline – we would love to see a chatline for older people needing a kind ear in times of distress, everyone needs to talk with someone every day!
Elder Abuse Support - unfortunately, our national elder abuse support adviser will need to provide more support in this time to help people suffering from elder abuse.
THANK YOU - we are so grateful for the generosity of New Zealanders in this time of need. Your support will make a difference! Kia Kaha.
We make a difference to the lives of older New Zealanders through respect and empowerment.
We help combat severe loneliness through our Accredited Visiting Service and we stop older people being abused and neglected through our Elder Abuse and Neglect Prevention Service. We also keep our older Kiwis happy and healthy with our Health Promotion programmes.
We work hard to make sure that every older person feels valued, respected, socially connected and safe.
