ConnectUp is our new and exciting approach to tackling isolation and loneliness. With a network of ConnectUp groups across the borough, we’re looking for volunteers to help run the groups and make people welcome. As a ConnectUp volunteer, you’ll help people find out what’s available in their area and try to find the best option for each individual. We’re also looking for volunteers to work as buddies, helping people access new activities and get over that initial ‘newness’ and hesitation about going to a strange place. We expect a minimum of a couple of hours per week at locations across the borough.
