Volunteers needed to help combat isolation and loneliness amongst our older communities

SCCCC, our charity of the year are putting an urgent call out to anyone who can spare an hour a week to help combat isolation and loneliness amongst our older communities in Sheffield.

They have been running the Good Neighbour Scheme, a friendly visiting service for 53 years, where volunteers visit older people in their own homes on a regular basis for a cuppa and a chat. To date there are 137 older people waiting for a friend; a friend to play games with, a friend to laugh with, a friend to just watch TV with. Could you be that friend?

If you could help please contact volunteers@scccc.co.uk and request an application form. Or visit the website for further details.
