Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Age Con­cern is look­ing for vol­un­teers to be matched with lonely older peo­ple as part of its Vol­un­teer Vis­it­ing Ser­vice. A vol­un­teer must live in­de­pen­dently in the same area as a client and they will go through a four hour ori­en­ta­tion ses­sion and con­sent to two ref­er­ence checks and a po­lice check. The vis­i­tor sees their new friend once a week for an hour, some­times more as the re­la­tion­ship grows. Con­tact Jenny Barker at jen­nyb@age­conak.org.nz or 09 820 2714.
