Volunteers needed to bring loneliness to an end

Share this article

Northallerton and District Voluntary Service Association is looking for helpers.

The group helps elderly and disabled people who can find themselves isolated in their own homes.

The Community Visiting Scheme provides volunteers who visit people in their home to chat about common interests, bring news about what’s happening in the local area, help with shopping or even escort them out and about.

Volunteers must be over 18, reliable, friendly and caring.
