b:friend are new to Tameside and they are looking to recruit new volunteers to support them in carrying out the work they do.
Come along to this volunteer information meeting to find out more about Let's B:Friend, the work they do, the people they support and how you can get involved as a volunteer.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions during the meeting
For 3.6 million people aged over 65, the television is their main source of company. As the only person your neighbour may see or speak to for days at a time, your time and friendship will mean so much
Let’s end loneliness together.
Let's b:friend are looking for volunteers to befriend socially isolated older people in Tameside.
They are a small charity on a mission to end loneliness.
They match older neighbours in need of more company with volunteers who want to make a new friend. As a volunteer you pledge to call your older neighbour twice a week to check in and lend a friendly ear.
Hopefully, when the pandemic comes to an end you will spend an hour a week visiting them at home, chatting over a biscuit and a brew.
Ideally volunteers will be able to committ at least 6 months of their time.
