Community Connector Volunteers | British Red Cross (Aberdeen)

It starts with ‘Hello’. From new mums to empty nesters, it’s often surprising whois affected by loneliness. That’s why we’re teaming up with The Co-operative. Together we want to reach out and reconnect thousands of lonely people with their communities, and tackle a problem that is shortening lives and eroding wellbeing.

The aim of the Community Connectors is to support people affected by social isolation and loneliness and to help people gain confidence and to reconnect to their community in partnership with existing and new partner organisations.

We will place the person at the centre of what we do and help people by offering positive encouragement, practical help and emotional support, for up to three months, depending on peoples needs.

Full training and excellent support is provided to all volunteers. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference in the local community. All help is greatly appreciated.
