The Engage project is recruiting new volunteers to support their work with the most lonely and isolated people in Reading.
The Engage project has an amazing team of volunteers. The two befriending programmes are Engage Befriending which support older people who are isolated and Engage Wellbeing who care for those who are isolated and vulnerable aged between 25 and 54 years.
Just one or two hours a week can make a huge difference in the life of someone who are lonely and isolated. The Covid pandemic shone a light on those in our communities who need our support and this work is still needed.
One of Engage Befriending service users recently said: “I don’t feel so isolated – very much cheered. It has meant a lot to me to have contact since I’ve been on my own. It’s a nice natural friendship that we developed…I value it greatly.”
