At Derby Live at Home scheme, we want to enable older people to maintain their independence and live more fulfilled lives.

Through befriending, lunch clubs & activity, outings, possible escorts to medical appointments and much more, MHA's Live at Home schemes across the UK help to tackle loneliness and isolation in people over 55 – helping them to lead fulfilled lives and remain as active members in their local communities.

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.


We are always keen to hear from kind, compassionate people who are able to volunteer some of their time to help us deliver and develop our services. If you have time to spare to help enhance the lives of local older people, please visit the Live at Home Volunteering page to find out more.
