Although our usual activities and clubs have been postponed, we are working hard to develop new services that will support you through this period of isolation.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers are offering a shopping service for those who are unable to leave their homes. We are working with Age UK National to access provisions and deliver books, DVDs, jigsaws and games.
It is important to keep our spirits up during this time, to feel connected to people, cope with anxieties and worries and share our concerns. Age UK County Durham is offering a call back service, a conversation with a team member who can chat, offer support and signpost you to other services that will help you during this time.
Our website has lots of information and we will update this on a daily basis.
We all need to be aware of the latest information and guidelines from the Government so that we can stay safe and limit the spread of the virus. This information can be found by clicking the link below.
Can you help us?
If you are able to offer help during Covid-19 we would love to hear from you. We need volunteers to help us with shopping support for older people living in County Durham. For more information visit our volunteering section
