Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Age Con­cern is look­ing for vol­un­teers to be matched with lonely older peo­ple as part of their 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. Age con­cern then matches a client with a vis­i­tor whom they think is an ideal match. The vis­i­tor sees their new friend once a week for an hour.
