Connectforce Companions - Winter Campaign Video is here!
We are thrilled to share our Connectforce Companions Winter Campaign video with you - see more information on our virtual befriending scheme on our 'Programmes' page.
Not only are we looking for Volunteers to become Connectforce Companions, but also wonderful care homes who know of residents who might benefit from having a good old chat!
At Connectforce, we want to support care home residents and staff as much as we possibly can, and we know that the next few months will continue to be difficult for many.
This scheme pairs care home residents with volunteer companions from the arts sector. The pairs will then have weekly video calls for a period of 8 weeks, where they can talk about anything they like - just as if they were meeting a new friend face to face!
Our companions will all have enhanced DBS checks, and will be professionals from the creative industry: actors, singers, artists, musicians, writers.... you name it! Whatever their line of work, you can be sure that they will be friendly, chatty, and full of energy - in other words, the perfect volunteer companions!
Are you a creative person who wants to kickstart 2021 by doing something good? Join our campaign to end loneliness in care homes by becoming a virtual companion to an isolated care home resident, starting in mid-January. Sign up here!
If you are a care home who know of any of your residents who have been feeling isolated, lonely, or would just like to see a new friendly face - then get in touch with us now here.
Because a good chat means the world...💜
