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:
Keeping ‘in touch’
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
Help to organise shopping and prescription delivery
Help to sort out transport to doctors, hospital, dentist, eye appointments etc.
Apply for a Blue Badge to allow easier parking
Support with ipads, laptops, computers, phones to enable zoom calls, emailing, finding information etc.
When we are able to and when the need is great, we try to take individuals on social outings and shopping trips etc.
Point you in the right direction and support you with :

Finding cleaners and gardeners etc when possible
