ScotsCare

ScotsCare plays a vital role in caring for elderly Scots in London. We support the over 60s of the Scottish community with practical help and advice.  We offer a range of services from grants and training to housing and social events to Scots and children of Scots living within 35 miles of Charing Cross.

We stick together. It might simply be meeting with other Scots once a month for a wee chat at our Over 50s Lunch.

Or you might enjoy our Over 50s summer seaside outings and our Christmas and Burns lunches.

We also offer a Befriending service,  where volunteers visit  you at home, meet with you out in the community or chat to you over the phone.

All our volunteers are carefully selected and police checked.
