    Would you like to be an Age UK Good Friend? Our new service, which pairs volunteers with a lonely or isolated person.

    Would you like to help a vulnerable older person living in your community? Possibly popping in for a chat and a brew or doing small tasks such as putting the bins out, shopping or tidying a garden etc.

    Are you already helping someone but might have questions or need support yourself?

    If so, we would like to hear from you!!

    How Goods Friends works:

    we match people in need of a little extra support to a Good Friends volunteer based on factors such as their needs and interests who can help with the issues they may be facing,

    We always try to match based on location, ensuring the person who's being supported feels they have someone nearby,

    Please ring us on 01729 823066 or

    email bharrison@ageuknorthcraven.org for more information.

    If you are in Settle please call in to the Age UK shop to talk to us.
