RSVP West is a key region for our RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme) and most members work in groups led by volunteer Project Organisers. They usually work within a particular geographical area and are involved in one or more areas of activity of their choice.

These include the provision of Community Care services (transport & wellbeing) in partnership with GP Surgeries, Volunteer Drivers groups, Lay Assessors in Care Homes and Home Care, Musical Activities projects for older people and an extensive Schools Volunteers Programme.

Other members have responsibility for internal activities such Office Administration, Information Systems (IT), a Membership and Projects Database, Bookkeeping, Publicity Materials and the Editorship of a regular Newsletter.
