A selection of the opportunities available this week through Volunteer Centre Dacorum.


Would you like to help at a new fun and stimulating club for older people with mild to moderate memory problems in Berkhamsted?

If you enjoy the company of older people, are friendly, fun-loving, caring and kind and can spare some time on Thursdays, this could be the volunteering role for you.

No specialist skills are needed but if you can help club members to feel welcome and at ease, make the tea and assist with clearing up then Age UK Dacorum would love to hear from you.

The club runs on Thursdays in the Kings Road Church Hall from 9.45am until 3.15pm and volunteers can stay for either the whole session or part of the time.

If you could also help with transporting members to and from the club that would be a real bonus.

An hour of your time once a week or more could make such a difference to the life of an older person living on their own.

This home-grown charity is also looking to match volunteer befrienders with elderly people looking for companionship in Markyate, Bovingdon and Chipperfield.

If you enjoy the company of older people, have good people skills and a caring nature this could be the role for you. Ideally, you would have your own transport or the ability to travel locally.

Find out about the launch of another project to support elderly people in Dacorum on page 19 this week.
