Help boost an OAP’s social life

Have your say

VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help elderly people in the city regain confidence and a social life.

The charity Health in Mind wants people who are willing to give up a couple of hours a week.

Participants will be matched up with a pensioner for up to four months, and in that time explore opportunities in the area they live and attempt to meet new people. Training and expenses are provided.

A spokesman said: “Volunteers will gain new skills and experience as well as adding to their personal development.”
