Pro­ject aims to help the el­derly

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen res­i­dents who have a spare two to three hours a week are wanted.

Re­con­nect is a new pro­ject and is re­cruit­ing vol­un­teers who can help to tackle iso­la­tion, which af­fects so many peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

It is look­ing for peo­ple who would like to help older res­i­dents.

The vol­un­teer would help sup­port an in­di­vid­ual to get out and about, as­sist­ing them to ac­cess ser­vices and ac­tiv­i­ties.

As well as sup­port­ing older res­i­dents, this pro­ject is an op­por­tu­nity for vol­un­teers to in­crease their own so­cial net­works, learn and de­velop skills and ac­cess train­ing.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested in the pro­ject or wants more in­for­ma­tion can con­tact Lesley or the Re­con­nect team on 0141 641 5236 or email volunteering@
