Our friends at Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton are acutely in need of volunteers to help run the charity’s Befriending Services – a vital lifeline for people aged 50+ living in the area who are feeling vulnerable, lonely and isolated.
The anxiety and disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge in demand for Age Concern’s Befriending Services, including the organisation’s telephone friendship service. The 200 current volunteers play a vital role in the lives of older people in Liverpool & Sefton, including visits to those who are housebound.
More volunteers are now needed to represent the community and improve people’s lives by sharing their experience, skills and knowledge. Contact Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton to volunteer or share the opportunity with anyone who may be interested:
