Volunteer Befriending Project for Older People (South Leitrim)

Our Volunteer Befriending Project has been running for the past five years. The project matches volunteers with older people who are feeling lonely and isolated, the volunteer visits them for about an hour a week in their own home to provide company and conversation, at a time that suits both the volunteer and the older person. Volunteers receive full training and support.

We currently have about 35 befriending matches in South Leitrim and it is a project that makes a BIG difference to people's lives. We are currently recruiting volunteers, particularly in the Drumshanbo, Ballinamore and Mohill areas.

So if you have an hour a week to spare and enjoy talking to people, please contact Anna McTiernan, Leitrim Development Company, 086 4073492 / 071 9641770.
