Who can get involved?

Give&TakeCare recruits through associate charities to enrol existing and new members. The charities we work with will be those that support the elderly and informal carers. The number of charities we work with will increase as the project expands.

People who are in one of our operating localities can join as CareGivers or CareReceivers to take part in befriending support. Some people may also wish to be a CareGiver and CareReceiver at the same time.

  • CareGivers – must be 18+ and assessed as suitable.
  • CareReceivers – must be 60+ and assessed as suitable.

Family members who are part of informal unregistered family care arrangements can also join the scheme if they are within an operating locality.
