As part of our Befriending Team, Deepa is one of our youngest volunteer telephone befrienders.

In this video, she talks about how losing her Grandfather last year inspired her to volunteer for Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland and how rewarding and essential her calls are each week, helping her befriendees to stay motivated and cheerful throughout these tough times…

Are you a younger person missing that contact with an older relative?  Could you help to bring some warmth into a lonely older person’s life?

We are privileged to have a diverse and multi-lingual range of volunteers with a wealth of knowledge and experience, so give us a call today on 0116 2992256 for more information about how you can support local older people.

We need your donations to ensure our vital support can continue through the coming winter months. 

We can do this, but not without you!
