The WRVS offers many services to older people in the home, hospital and community, allowing them to regain and retain their independence by providing practical help and activities. They are currently developing a pilot scheme with the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead to encourage higher volunteer participation, helping older people maintain their own homes whilst reducing isolation and loneliness.
