Befriending Services in Cheshire West
We have recently secured funding from Cheshire West and Chester Council, which means that this service will be extended across Cheshire West over the next three years. The project aims to reduce isolation and loneliness and to support older people to continue to live independently in their own homes. We have a network of volunteers who help to achieve these aims and we are currently recruiting volunteers in mid Cheshire and Chester. If you would like to know more about this project, become one of our volunteers, or would like to refer an older person into this project, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for Chester, or email@example.com for Mid Cheshire. Alternatively, call us on 0300 666 6226.
Tuesday Lunch Club in Mid Cheshire
This is our latest project and we are delighted to be working with Greenbank School in Northwich to provide a lunch club for older people in the area. It is a great opportunity to get together over a 3 course meal, cooked by the Greenbank College students, as part of their work experience curriculum. To find out more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 0300 666 6226.
At Home with IT project
This project is funded through Cheshire Community Foundation and Vale Royal Clinical Commissioning Group. We have a number of iPads which are available for loan to enable older people to try out the technology at home to keep in touch with families and friends, and to access services. Frances, who is our Project Worker, is available to help to support people in their own homes and community settings to get the most out of IT. We are also looking for volunteers who would be interested in helping out – please contact Frances at email@example.com
