Join our team and help combat social isolation

Befriending / Visiting volunteers needed for Engage Befriending

Some older people feel isolated and we are looking for volunteers who could:

  • visit them in their home once a week or fortnight
  • take them out for a coffee
  • visit a local place of interest

All our volunteers receive training and we give support to have a DBS check done.
