Revival North Yorkshire


Our aims are to revive community spirit and provide a range of support, services and activities to improve the well-being of the community, particularly older people, in our rurally isolated villages of the Esk Valley Moor & Coast. With our volunteers we aim to support older and vulnerable people to live independently in their own homes as safely and as happily as possible for as long as they wish through:

Regular phone calls to find out that you are safe and well

Regular befriending calls for nice friendly chat 

Doorstep / Home visit to find out how you are and help with any problems


Practical help

Help to organise shopping and prescription delivery

Help to sort out transport to doctors, hospital, dentist, eye appointments etc.

Support with ipads, laptops, computers, phones to enable zoom calls, emailing, finding information etc.
