Community Volunteering

Information/advice service for older people in Hampshire

What does it do?

Finding Information
A Volunteer can provide information on a range of topics such as finding help to manage the home, social activities locally or what government help someone may be eligible for.

Support to get connected
When appropriate, Volunteers can also provide a bit of tailored support to help a person to get connected to the service they need. This may be making a phone call or filling in a form on their behalf or making first introductions to a group.

Local Knowledge
Volunteers get to know the charities and local support groups working in the area and can help put people in touch with the right help at the right time.
