What are the benefits for charities?

We believe everyone stands to gain from the G&TC scheme once sufficient numbers of Partners take part. We are looking to collaborate with charities who share our long-term vision. The G&TC scheme will bring the following benefits:


  • Encourage more people to become befriending volunteers for elderly people.
  • Create more person-centred care for older adults.
  • Build support networks in local communities.
  • Give something back to befriending volunteers – the Care Savings Account.
  • Reduce loneliness for CareReceivers


Our long-term business plan commitment is for the scheme to be sustainably run through our associate charities. This can be achieved in the future when sufficient numbers of people take part and exchange care.
