Services for older people in Portsmouth and Havant

At MHA Communities Portsmouth and Havant, we want to enable older people to maintain their independence and live more fulfilled lives.

Through befriending, lunch clubs, assisted shopping, activity and friendship sessions, outings, escorts to appointments and much more, MHA's Portsmouth & Havant schemes across the UK help to tackle loneliness and isolation in people over 60 – helping them to lead fulfilled lives and remain as active members in their local communities.

Activities at Portsmouth and Havant scheme include:

  • Singing for Fun and Wellbeing in Waterlooville and Drayton
  • Exercise group in Waterlooville 
  • Chatterbox social group in Eastney
  • Outings
  • Befriending

The scheme's activities programme is designed and led by its members and volunteers to ensure that we are providing the practical and social support which those we serve need.

Contact us today to see how we could be of service to you or a loved one living at home.

Information for businesses and corporates

MHA is able to subsidise many of its charitable services thanks to the generous contributions of businesses who want to make a difference in their local communities. How to get involved

Information for families and friends

If you’re looking at Portsmouth & Havant to help someone you know, we understand. With a busy work life, family and other responsibilities, sometimes it just isn’t possible to travel regularly and give a loved one the dedicated care and support you wish you could provide. Refer a family member or friend

Information for healthcare professionals

If an older person in hospital has no family, friends or neighbours, we can assist them to return home. We work with GP practices, hospital discharge and re-enablement teams and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to support older people adjust and settle back at home after a period in hospital. Refer a patient

Information for local authorities

Through our preventative, person-centred services, we can reduce the strain on local health services – delaying, minimising or even preventing people’s need for them. More information

Volunteers needed

Can you offer your time to prevent people from feeling lonely and isolated? Maybe you're looking to become more involved with your local community?

If this sounds like you, we need your help!

We are offering you the opportunity to help older people in your community live later life well. We run weekly groups for people aged 55+ and are looking for Volunteers to get involved for a few hours a month, whenever it suits YOU!

Perhaps you’d like to contribute a couple of hours to fundraise? Maybe you’d like to take part in a weekly lunch club serving freshly cooked meals to our members?

We know that your time is precious so we will work with you to make sure you get the most out of your experience with us. From working directly with the groups and running your own sessions, to representing the scheme at local events are many aspects of the organisation you can choose to get involved with!

If you are a good communicator who shares our values of helping eliminate loneliness in older people, get in touch.

Volunteer drivers to take some of our frail members to and from activities (and stay and join in if they wish, free of charge). The activities are Singing for Fun and Wellbeing held at Waterlooville community centre on Wednesday mornings weekly from 10am – 11.30am, Steady and Strong Exercise, Waterlooville Baptist Church, London Rd on Wednesday afternoons 2.00 to 4.15pm. Expenses paid.

Social Volunteers  welcome members to either of our, Singing for Fun and Wellbeing Groups in Waterlooville Wednesday 10-11.30am and Drayton Friday 10-11.30am . Singing for people living with dementia, Havant town centre, Friday morning, scheduled to launch at the end of June 2019. These groups are for all abilities or no ability at all. It is more important that people have the opportunity to meet people in a social setting and make new friends whilst taking part in a shared activity. During the first 30 minutes people have a chat over tea and biscuits before singing begins.

Helping at these activities can mean arriving half an hour before the session starts, helping to put out chairs, welcoming members when they arrive, handing out leaflets of our other activities, making label name badges for members, introducing new members to one another, distributing tea and coffee, distributing song sheets, generally making people feel comfortable and helping to create a friendly atmosphere and helping to clear away afterwards. You can make a difference and have fun at the same time.

Befriending volunteers to visit people in their own homes for coffee and a chat, or to accompany them on shopping trips. Choose the time to suit you, whether it’s a few hours per week, fortnight or once a month, you can make a real difference to someone’s life and form lasting friendships.
