‘No one should have No one’ is the strapline for this year’s Age UK winter campaign. In Worcestershire alone it is estimated that there are over 11,000 chronically lonely older people, many going weeks without speaking to anyone. That’s where you can help. If you join our team of volunteers you could offer just an hour a month (more if you like) to call or visit a person living near you. Some just want a chat at home whereas others might like to join your team in a pub quiz, go to the cinema, have a coffee, learn how to use facebook or join the gym. Our volunteering is really flexible and can be done around work or study commitments and depends on what you and your match arrange. The extra experience looks great on a CV and you receive DBS clearance and free training.
