HOPe New Forest - 7 years of service to the local community.

Thank you to everyone for your support.

A resource and a friendly ear since 1st October 2013

Shops in Station Road, NEW MILTON and Market Place, RINGWOOD

We are dedicated to supporting older people in the community, particularly those who are isolated or vulnerable.

Our central aim is to improve the quality of life for thousands of people locally, helping them to retain their independence safely and with dignity and to get the most out of life. We also promote the role of older people as active citizens.

To achieve our aims, we work with other charities and organisations, not in competition with them.

Our income is used entirely in the local community. Please help our work with your donations. Cheques can be made payable to:

Helping Older People New Forest

and we operate a Gift Aid scheme.

Befriending Scheme

Volunteers wanted!

Our Befriending service, currently available in the New Milton area, has been launched by HOPe New Forest and we are looking for volunteers.

If you can spare an hour or two each week to visit someone who is feeling isolated or lonely then please get in touch.

We provide training and ongoing support and it's a really rewarding thing to do.

If you feel you can help or would like to find out more, please contact our scheme manager Steve Anderton.
