The British Red Cross had its 150th birthday this month. All over the world, behind the corona virus pandemic is a team of humanitarian heroes working tirelessly to keep people safe and they’re in your area!
The Community Connect service provides a befriending and enabling service in the Harrogate and Rural District with up to 12 weeks of support in the community. The service has adapted during recent times due to the pandemic and has been serving the community by way of medication delivery, shopping and befriending telephone calls.
If you know anyone 65 or over whom you think could benefit from this service, they can make a referral through their GP or can self refer. The service is looking to provide garden visits and recruit more befriending volunteers.
