Help older people combat loneliness this winter
With over a million older people in the UK going a month without speaking to someone you can help them beat loneliness by volunteering this winter.
Cambridgeshire volunteers are already making a difference and there are loads of opportunities where you can help out.
According to 2011 Census, around 30,000 people in Cambridgeshire aged 65 and over are living alone. Evidence suggests that by sharing your time with an older person and helping them get out and about can have a real impact on boosting their self-esteem, confidence and help them feel a part of their community.
