Summary

We're looking for volunteers to help run this friendly lunch club, and help support a variety of activities for the elderly of North Herts

Detailed description

The purpose of the Centre is to provide food and friendship – via services such as a lunch club, and a range of tailored social activities - to overcome social isolation in the older members of the North Hertfordshire population.


A free hot meal is available for all volunteers at the centre during the lunch club!


Other reasons to volunteer with us:

  • This is a sociable and supportive role, which provides you with an opportunity to make a real difference in your community.
  • It can help build your confidence and create meaningful relationships with those at risk of social isolation.
  • This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in health and social care who would like to gain some experience.


Typical daily activities include:

  • Befriending and talking with the members
  • Making teas and coffees
  • Helping organise the members for their sit-down hot meal at lunchtime
  • Running activities with the members, such as social games or quizzes
  • Assisting with light exercise, for example seated fitness classes
