Together we can make a difference!

Help us combat loneliness and stress this Christmas by signing up as a volunteer for #CaringChristmas!


Are you or a loved one vulnerable or spending Christmas alone this year?

To help combat loneliness and isolation this Christmas, unless you are vulnerable or advised to shield, consider inviting a neighbour, relative or friend who may also be living alone to join your 3 household bubble this Christmas from 23rd-27th December, so that everyone can see a friendly face over the festive period. Or, enjoy a socially distanced chat, walk or drink with neighbours in the garden or on the doorstep throughout the festive season.

Our volunteers are also able to help in many ways: 

  • To do your grocery, essential items or Christmas shopping
  • To keep you company through a video or telephone call all throughout the day during the festive period.

Sign up on the Yoopies page, choose the type of help you need and match with some of our volunteers through the search filter “Willing to volunteer during the festive season”.

I'm ready to help those in need this Christmas!

If you're healthy and have some free time this festive period and are looking for a way to help others who may be lonely, isolated or struggling this Christmas, sign up to make a real difference to someone's life by offering company or relieving their workload this month.

Ways in which you can help:

  • Babysit at home or take the kids out of the house for a couple of hours to allow parents working from home to get on with their work.
  • Offer to do the shopping or general errands for someone who is isolating, vulnerable or less able to get out during these times.
  • Keep someone company who might be alone this festive period, invite a friend, neighbour or relative to join your 3 household bubble from 23rd-27th December or just give someone a telephone or video call to check how they're doing.

Sign up on the Yoopies page, explain the type of help you can offer and be sure to check the option “Willing to volunteer during the festive season”.

Are you a key worker or currently working from home with children?

For all those who are struggling to balance working from home with family life, especially during the school holidays, don't stress! We're offering help for parents who have to work throughout the festive period.

Our volunteers are available to: 


  • To look after your children whilst you work, either regularly or as a one off emergency cover!
  • Offer educational support to children who may have homeschooling requirements or additional educational needs during the holidays.
