caring for Carers

A report by Carers UK revealed that 8 out of 10 carers have felt lonely or isolated as a result of looking after a loved one. We can help to make a difference.

Do you have a few hours a week to give to others? The Carers Centre Befriending Scheme helps to reduce loneliness and isolation for carers and we need volunteers to make a difference.

Our Volunteer Befrienders and Buddy’s are working really hard offering support, encouragement and a listening ear to carers when they feel lonely and isolated.

Why not contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator on 01942 705959 to find out how you can join a great team and make a difference to local carers through volunteering
