Because a good chat means the world...
Do you know an older person who might benefit from a weekly 20 minute video call with a friendly creative companion?
Connectforce Companions is open to any older person who wishes to take part, and the process is simple: we will pair them a volunteer virtual ‘Companion’, with whom they will communicate via 20 minute video calls, once a week for 8 weeks.
Our volunteers are all professionals from the arts industry and are full of energy, empathy and openness. These weekly calls are designed to provide companionship, improve wellbeing and increase older people's confidence with technology.
Connectforce will be on hand at every stage to ensure the programme is enjoyable, stress free and accessible.
