New Volunteer Opportunities!
31 January 2014
If you are interested in helping with any activities……
We are looking for active people to help us make sure Norwich is a
great place to live-whatever your age! Whether it’s Arts and Crafts,
gardening or supporting a small luncheon club within a school
Out and About
We have just launched our new Lottery-funded Out and About volunteering scheme. Isolation is one of the biggest problems for many people in later life as reduced income, mobility problems, frailty or just loss of confidence can make getting out seem daunting.
If you would like to help someone get more out of life by helping in practical ways - whether it is transport, support, encouragement or just being there - please do get in touch.
We'll match with someone who 'fits' and we are always there for support and back-up.
