Caring Connections supports older people with long term health conditions to keep socially active. It is for Haringey residents aged 50 or over with health condition(s) who are at risk of becoming isolated or depressed. Caring Connections provides volunteer led friendship groups which support older people to stay in contact with friends.
Older people can be involved with Caring Connections either as participants or as volunteers offering peer support to others. We welcome older volunteers who have experience of long term health conditions, and volunteers who understand the impact of long term conditions upon older peoples’ lives.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or wish to refer an older person to the project contact Kathy Wiltshire Caring Connections Development Worker at Age UK Haringey. Kathy.firstname.lastname@example.org Tel number 020 8885 8353 or 020 8801 2444.
