We run a number of sessions for older adults (over 55s) including Walking Football, talking groups with quizzes and games, Sporting Memories, walk and talk groups and chair based exercise. Support in these sessions would include spending time talking to people who may be lonely and isolated, listening to their stories and engaging with them. Sessions would need to be set up and tidied away so there would be some cleaning and tidying involved alongside staff members.

Volunteers are provided with a t-shirt.

What skills do I need?
