Volunteering is a two way street. You will make a real difference to someone who is likely to be lonely, isolated and desperately in need of company.
You will in return get the immense satisfaction of making a real difference and the only cost to you will be a couple of hours of your time a week.
You will also be making a telling contribution to your local community and you will be a very positive influence in a vulnerable older person’s day, bringing a smile to their face and you will probably be the highlight of their week.
For yourself – you will gain experience in community work, develop your social and team skills and you will be rewarded with the satisfaction that you are making a real difference.
