The No.1 Befriending Agency is a vibrant local social enterprise that works to reduce loneliness and isolation. Part of how we do this is to ensure that older people can thrive in later life. We work with our dedicated volunteers to provide the support that local older people need to live happy, healthy lives. We work to help older people stay connected with their communities, alleviating loneliness, improving health and wellbeing and making communities stronger through volunteering.
This is a funded project for 14 weeks to connect socially isolated and vulnerable people while they are shielding/unable to go out. This includes providing support for them to be as independent as possible using digital technology and accessing virtual events.
The Project Co-ordinator will focus on making connections and identifying partners that can refer clients that would otherwise be unable to get connected or access our services.
