An elderly charity supporting older generations in London
The Elderly & Disabled Charitable Trust UK was set up in 2019 to provide tailored support and companionship to vulnerable and isolated members of the community. See what our team has done in the Greater London area and beyond, or get in touch to volunteer, donate, or to seek support.
Supporting the elderly and disabled in our community
Isolation and loneliness is an ongoing problem in the NW10 area and beyond. Our goal is to provide friendship, support and human interaction which, sadly, many elderly people miss out on.
The volunteers at The Elderly & Disabled Charitable Trust UK provide a personal, friendly service to older people, disabled people, and the vulnerable. Your donations and volunteering time help make days brighter. Discover how we help people in the area and get in touch to learn more.
Being able to support our service users to connect, build mindful relationships and develop social capital can provide a longer lasting and positive impact for them, improving outcomes around, wellbeing, mortality and happiness is just as important as helping them access medication.
Connecting people is an evident approach to supporting people to connect with others, it appears to work best where there is support to implement it. If you would like to find out.

Advantages of recycling metal -
Why is it important to recycle metal?
What is metal recycling?
It's the process of taking waste metal, processing it and creating new metal material. This recycled metal can be used to make metal products which can then be recycled again once used or not needed.
Which Metals can be recycled?
The two main types of metals are ferrous (containing a notable amounts of iron) and non ferrous both of which can be recycled. It is more important than ever to recycle waste materials where possible, aside from general benefits of recycling, such as reducing landfill.
Reduce Energy Use
The creation of Virgin metal materials uses far more energy than recycled metal. The process of repurposing waste metal is far more waste efficient, for example: recycled aluminium requires 95% less energy. Copper is another energy-efficient waste metal, with recycled copper requiring 90% less energy.
Our work includes:
Mentoring and befriending is one-to-one, non judgemental relationship where you volunteer your time to support and encourage someone. Many people benefit from the support of a befriender at a time of change in their life or when they are socially isolated due to illness or old age.
For those who prefer not to have an in person visit each week, we can arrange for a friendly volunteer to provide weekly phone calls to chat and listen.
Areas we cover: These catchment areas we cover Harlesden, Willesden, Neasden and Stonebridge. We also cover areas outside the catchment areas of Wembley, Alperton and Harrow.
Meet other people and develop lifelong friendships. We set up local hubs in the Greater London area, allowing people to come together and enjoy board games, gardening, or simply a chat! Get in touch to find out where and when our next hub session will be.
Pick-up and drop-off services
Mobility and access to transport are two reasons why many older and vulnerable people feel isolated. We offer a full pick-up and drop-off service, allowing people to get from their homes to one of our hub days, and enjoy interacting with our team and other people.
If you require transport, please speak to our friendly team.
London is a big place, and can be a challenge for people, especially those new to the area. We're always happy to offer advice and recommendations for places to go, community groups, upcoming events we think you may be interested in. We can also provide information on other organisations who can provide additional support, such as support with finances or food.
