Volunteering with Young at Heart

/media/community-projects/library/volunteer-befriender.jpg

Young at Heart relies on the many volunteers who help out at the clubs and on trips.

The project is currently seeking Volunteer Befrienders and Volunteer Gardeners. 

Befrienders

We are looking for volunteers to support older people in the Stoke-on-Trent area who are lonely, isolated or struggle to get out and about.

The work involves visiting people at home for a chat over a cup of tea, giving them someone to talk to or simply keeping them company for a while.

Enthusiasm and the desire to make a difference to the lives of older people in your community are the only skills needed. 

If you can spare as little as an hour a week to help an older person feel less lonely we want to hear from you.

We are looking for volunteers to join the Community Gardening Scheme, helping elderly and disabled people maintain their gardens.

Work will involve basic gardening such as mowing a lawn or light weeding. 

No heavy work or climbing will be required. All training and equipment will be provided.

Enthusiasm and a desire to make a difference to the lives of people in your community are the only skills needed. As a volunteer gardener you will not only be assisting people to live independently but also helping to improve the local environment.

To find out more about these roles, or other ways of volunteering at Young at Heart, call Matt Ford on 07587 034299 or email mattford@fatherhudsons.org.uk
