About Us

Marmalade Trust is a charity dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation in vulnerable members of our society.

Social isolation is a huge problem, which affects people both at Christmas and throughout the year.

Marmalade Trust started in 2013 when Founder Amy Perrin took three guests out for Christmas lunch, this year we are taking over 60 people who would otherwise be on their own out on Christmas day, and we have big plans to expand even further in 2016!

What We Do

  • Through local volunteer-led groups we organise two community events, trips or treats a year, one at Christmas and one in the summer
  • We provide support to our guests throughout the year through Marmalade Buddies
  • We work to raise awareness of the effects of social isolation; with a particular focus on the wider health implications
  • We develop and nurture close links between Marmalade Trust and established organisations; to improve the strength and reach of the ‘safety net’ required to prevent more vulnerable people falling into social isolation.

Our new website is coming soon – pop your details in the form below and we’ll keep you posted with news, events and volunteering opportunities.
