Helping to tackle loneliness during lockdown

As we are, once again, staying at home in order to save lives due to Covid-19, I know there are lots of amazing volunteers and organisations stepping up to help those who need it most. One of those I’ve been in touch with is Age UK Cambridgeshire and Peterborough where the team and volunteers continue to work tirelessless supporting older people whether helping with shopping and deliveries, supporting those recently discharged from hospital, sewing facemasks, or driving donations. One thing you may be able to help with is to become a Telephone Befriender who makes regular friendship calls to older people to help reduce isolation and loneliness. It makes an enormous difference to those receiving the call. I’d urge anyone who can to think about joining – Age UK provides an online induction and regular keep in touch support and applicants would need to undertake DBS reference checks.
