Volunteers for new network

Have your say

VOLUNTEERS are wanted for a new service aimed at helping people feel less isolated in their communities.

Derbyshire County Council is launching the Derbyshire trusted befriending network in January and wants volunteers to sign up to become ‘befriending champions’.

They will act as the `eyes and ears’ of their local community, looking out for people who are at risk of becoming lonely or isolated and also linking in with people who are receiving befriending support.
