We’re delighted to be part of Operation No Cold Shoulder offering support to ease isolation in partnership with Age UK Norfolk, Community Action Norfolk, Creative Arts East and Future Projects. Funding from this project allows us to offer Befriending in North Lynn and Dersingham. More information about Operation No Cold Shoulder is available on the Community Action Norfolk website.
We were excited to feature on BBC Radio Norfolk last week as part of its special series of broadcasts to launch its Volunteer of the Year awards. The show invited us to talk about how and why we work with volunteers, and gave us the opportunity to unveil our new Care Home Connectors project.
Hear from Chief Executive Pippa about what we do, and from our new member of staff Amanda, who talks about Care Home Connectors.
Our volunteers breathe life into the organisation, helping us to help vulnerable clients and provide a lifeline to them through their isolation. We’ve been working with the community for the past 15 years and always welcome new volunteers, whether it’s offering our core service as Befrienders or providing other much-valued skills.
You can find the show here, and go straight to our slot in the show at 01:26:00.
