Due to government guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic ALL regular Roar Services are suspended

We are now operating a friendship/welfare phone service and a temporary grocery and prescription collection service for older people who meet our criteria for these service offers.

To our community:

We aim to help older people across Renfrewshire who need emotional or practical support now that they didn’t have in place before the lockdown and have no family who can help.
