Free ‘Thank You’ cards for volunteers taking action on loneliness

As part of 2020’s National Befriending Week (1-7 November), RVA’s Ready Friends project is offering local community groups packs of up to 20 specially-designed Thank You cards for groups to then send to individual volunteers.


More volunteers than ever before have helped in many, many ways to support people facing loneliness and social isolation – especially during lockdown and beyond, where many people are still shielding and self-isolating.

If your group includes volunteers who have helped with befriending, buddying, community driving or checking-in calls (or in any other ways that reduce loneliness and social isolation) please get in touch with Rhiannon within the next 2 weeks to request a pack.

It’s a small way to thank them for being so fabulous.

For Thank You cards, please email Rhiannon at
