Could You Help Us Combat Loneliness & Isolation In Sheffield ?

A new service is starting this summer 2020 in South West Sheffield. The service, called Porter Valley in Touch had to be put on hold due to Covid-19, but this service is now needed more than ever, and, with your help, can now get started. 

The service is a joint initiative between Age UK Sheffield and local NHS services with the aim of supporting older people to feel more confident, maintain or regain independence and reduce loneliness & social isolation. 

Following training, volunteers will support a person over the phone / video call or at a safe distance to provide a friendly face and teach skills such as domestic tasks, confidence in travelling or learning basic IT skills to help keep in touch with family. 

If this volunteer role sounds like something you might enjoy & you have a little free time each week, this might be the perfect opportunity for you to have a big impact on someone's life.
