FCV Dorcas is a small charity located in the heart of Clerkenwell. Our aim is to reduce loneliness and isolation for elderly people living in the N1 and EC1 areas of Islington.

Our volunteers provide companionship and practical support - a friendly face and a sympathetic ear. We play an essential role in their lives, helping to improve their well-being and reduce loneliness
