Sherburn Visiting Scheme - Supporting Seniors

Sherburn Visiting Scheme provides a wide number of services and activities for the elderly in Sherburn in Elmet and the surrounding areas.  From medical transport to meals delivered directly to their door, to door to door shopping trips and planned days out, the Sherburn Visiting Scheme provides an essential service for local elderly residents.  Without the help and support of our volunteers, we would not be able to operate the charity.  If you can donate any of your time to our cause, then please get in touch and contribute to making a difference.


The Sherburn Visiting Scheme provides various essential services to the local elderly residents within Sherburn in Elmet. From medical transport to hot meals delivered directly to their door and various days out, the Sherburn Visiting Scheme aims to provide life-enhancing services to support the local elderly in their later life.


The Sherburn Visiting Scheme offers a unique opportunity for the local elderly to be a part of something special by joining in on our various activities. Our activities offer a fantastic opportunity to meet new friends, learn something new or just sit back and relax with a cup of tea and a chat. We also offer door to door weekly and monthly shopping trips via a luxury coach.



Each month, we organise a day trip to visit a place of interest. A luxury coach picks up and drops off those who want to join in on the fun. Our events are fantastic for those who like to get out and about but find using public transport difficult. In addition to this, we also attend and host fundraising events where we help raise money for the Sherburn Visiting Scheme.

A Donation of Time to Keep us Moving

The Sherburn Visiting Scheme has been running for many years and over that time it has become an essential service for many of our elderly residents. The scheme is becoming under increasing pressure due to the increased number of people using the service and the retirement of some of our longstanding drivers. The need for new drivers is vital for the service to continue.
