Volunteer Action is a local charity supporting the elderly, unwell, disadvantaged and those with disabilities. We operate in Oundle, Thrapston and the surrounding villages from Easton-on-the-Hill to Titchmarsh.

At this difficult time, you may be looking for help from a name you already trust.  Opportunities to meet people for a chat and to go out for essential food and medications are severely limited for some time to come. VA could help.

We still have a small group of volunteer drivers willing and able to take you to medical appointments.  Our usual membership criteria apply and this will incur the usual costs. Phone and book in the usual way. 

We are also offering a prescription collection and delivery service. This is available to everyone in our area who is self-isolating. Our usual costs apply. Phone for details.

We may be able to help with food shopping and delivery for those who fit into our membership criteria. Because this is a fast-changing situation, we are having to adapt this service every day. Please call the office and ask how we can help. This service incurs the usual costs.

We will also be offering a friend-on-the-phone service. If this is something you would like, call today to go on the list.
