Volunteers wanted - Erewash Voluntary Action September bulletin

Published on: Wednesday, 22nd September 2021

Could you help to reduce someone's loneliness?  Can you help to build confidence in someone who is isolated?  Would you be willing to assist people with their shopping?  Erewash Voluntary Action is looking for volunteers to help with four local services.

BUDDY SCHEME
The volunteer buddy will provide short term support to individuals who have not left their home for some time and have lost confidence to go out. 

TELEPHONE BEFRIENDING SERVICE
The Telephone volunteer will call the client to provide a regular telephone befriending service. 

SHOPPING
Providing a shopping service for people who are unable to shop for themselves and have no family or friends to help.  Shopping can be carried out on a weekly basis by volunteers if available. 

HOME FROM HOSPITAL SUPPORT SERVICE
Volunteers provide practical support for vulnerable people leaving hospital, or those living at home but at risk of being admitted.
