Community Action Suffolk (CAS) is looking for people who are interested in befriending elderly residents - many of whom see their befriender as a lifeline, giving companionship when they feel isolated.
Beneficiaries appreciate the fact that the visitor is a person who chooses to spend time with them and a visit once a week offers a listening ear and company.
If you are interested in visiting elderly or housebound residents the CAS is holding a Training and Information workshop on November 29 at Haverhill House, Lower Downs Slade, from 10am to 12.30pm. The training will be provided by Age UK Suffolk.
If you are interested please contact Elaine Hewes – volunteering field officer on 01440 708444 or email email@example.com.
