HOPe New Forest celebrates 5 years of service
to the local community.

Thank you to everyone for your support.

A resource and a friendly ear since 1st October 2013

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.


We are opening a new shop in the new year at
21 Market Place, Ringwood, from where we are
looking forward to extending our operations.  

We shall be requiring stock and also volunteers.
If anyone is interested, please contact us at our
New Milton Shop

Befriending Scheme

Volunteers wanted!

A brand new Befriending service 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.
