Co Co seeks more volunteers

Co-Co LogoYou’ll no doubt have seen publicity for Hodnet Compassionate Communities (Co Co) around the area or on this site.

After a steady start the project seems to be gathering speed and we have already received several enquiries since new year.

The majority of our existing volunteers are now deployed with a regular client to visit, so it seems an appropriate time to put the word around that we are seeking to recruit more helpers – particularly gentlemen!

Being a Co Co volunteer does not require complex skills or knowledge – an interest in people and a care for their wellbeing is the main requirement. Would you be able to allocate a couple of hours each week to befriend/connect with someone who’s struggling with social isolation? This may involve visiting them in their home or occasionally taking them out of their four walls to give them a change of scene.

If you’d like to find out more, please see our page on this website, ring us on 07849 835687 or email us. We look forward to hearing from you.
