The Royal Voluntary Service provides practical help and friendly social contact for older people from people living locally. This is achieved by providing services such as Good Neighbour home visits and telephone calls, outings and assistance with shopping. We also provide Social Transport to hospital and medical appointments including transport to Day-care. Other services include the Home Library Service and a friendly, welcoming face at the Perth Royal Infirmary Reception Desk.
Popular services throughout Tayside regions are the Social Clubs and Lunch Clubs. These enable our Service Users to get out and about and socialise regularly within the community.
