Could you help reduce loneliness?
A third of Surrey residents aged 65+ (almost 76,000 older people in the county) live alone*. To address the problem of social isolation among older residents in the North of Reigate & Banstead, Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead (VARB) is looking to recruit volunteers to help put an end to loneliness.
Volunteer and support older and isolated people in Banstead
Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead (VARB) wants to make a change and reduce isolation, but we need your support as a volunteer.
Volunteers make a huge difference by helping people stay connected and feel part of their local community.
