Looking After Older People in Bedfordshire


Just Giving 

Unfortunately the loss of statutory funding in 2016 and the effect of Coronavirus has meant that fund raising and grants have been reduced but costs have remained the same.

Having re-opened for activities and classes in May, attendances are increasing as confidence returns to our older people.  Unfortunately this is not quick enough to avoid closure and we are looking for financial help to avoid having to make the decision to close the charity.

About Us

Welcome to Bedford Guild House: a friendly place for anyone over the age of 50.
We are a registered charity and have been offering support and activities to older people for over 40 years.
Our main aim is to provide people with an opportunity to meet others socially. to make new friends and to spend time enjoying a wide range of interesting activities.
At Bedford Guild House you are never alone. We are a friend like no other. You can make new friends, find new interests and and try out activities and it’s all here under one roof!


There are many reasons to volunteer. Here are just a few:  

  • Volunteering is very rewarding, you will have the satisfaction of being part of a group working together to achieve goals in supporting older people in the community.
  • Volunteering helps to prepare for paid employment. It builds confidence, you will meet new people, learn new skills, get a reference and have experience to add to your CV. 
  • Volunteering is an excellent way to support the causes that matter to you.

There are lots of things to choose from:
administration, sales, organisation, charity shop work & plenty of other opportunities.
