Volunteering Opportunities

 

VOLUNTEER COMMUNITY CONNECTOR

Helping isolated people rediscover their interests and gain confidence.
Are you looking for a rewarding voluntary role in your community?

The Community Connections project supports adults in Lewisham who are isolated or lonely. We do this by connecting them to community groups and activities. We are looking for volunteers who can help us in our mission to reduce isolation.

WHAT WOULD THIS INVOLVE?
Each client will receive your support for a limited period of time. Types of support that you can offer include:

  • Escorting to social groups
  • Confidence building
  • Help with building skills such as IT / use of gadgets
  • Assisting with new transport services
  • Help with form filling

Community Connectors are not long term befrienders. The goal is to support the client in practical ways so as to empower them and enable them to continue doing these things independently in the future. We take a keen interest in enabling our volunteers to fulfil their potential and offer opportununities for personal development. You will receive regular supervision and training. 

HOW TO APPLY:
If you are interested in joining our team, or would like more information, please email Emma at emma.corcoran@ageuklands.org.uk or call 020 8314 3244.
