I’m a trustee of a local charity (Voices & Choices) and I’m hoping people on here may be able to spread the word about our new service aimed particularly at people living alone.

There are a wide range of community social groups running in the local area.; gardening, sport, history, knit and knatter, coffee mornings and many more. Our volunteers meet people, get to understand them and their interests and then support them to find groups to match those interests. They can even accompany people on their first few visits.

When people are more comfortable staying in their own home, our volunteers can help people find online activities and even show them how to use their phone or laptop to access online social groups.

If you think you, or someone you know, could benefit from this service please get in touch on 01494 784566 or info@voicesandchoices.org.uk
