Connection Support

Prevent loneliness and isolation in your community become a befriender.

We all need a helping hand or listening ear – sometimes more so due to health, isolation or recovery following an operation

Connection Support is a local charity and they are looking for volunteer befrienders to support our Prevention Matters clients in Buckinghamshire.

Prevention Matters help adults regain confidence, maintain independence and help them get out and about. The Community Support Workers support clients by finding help, signposting to other services, connect with others in the local community and provide encouragement to get involved in social events.

You can make a difference to people’s lives as a Prevention Matters volunteer by:

Increase or maintain social links such as attend local events, transport to coffee mornings
· Accompany clients on GP or hospital appointments

· Teach clients new digital skills such as email, Skype or how to search the web.

· Practical support in the garden or a spot of DIY in their home

· Assistance with hoarding disorder

· Support to a carer who is feeling isolated

Volunteers will have their traveling and out of pocket expenses covered. Opportunity to complete NVC National Volunteering Certificate and other in-house training.

At Connection Support they feel that nobody can do everything but everyone can do something so volunteering is flexible to suit you.

They welcome applications from people from all backgrounds to join our diverse team, if you have any disabilities or health conditions, we will do everything we can to help you access this opportunity.
