Volunteers Needed

We are looking for volunteers to help us with a new Lottery funded project GET CONNECTED which aims to get older people in Trafford connected to their community and reduce the loneliness and isolation that so many have felt over the last 6 months due to the pandemic.

Can you spare a couple of hours a week to make a telephone call to an older person to support them to use the tablet so they can maintain contact with their friends and relatives and enable them to join in with the “virtual” activities and events in their local area. If you can please contact us on 0161 746 9754 or email at
