The British Red Cross is appealing for volunteers to provide support to people at home in the Grantham area.
Red Cross support at home services provide short-term support to people in their own home while they recover from an illness, injury or after a stay in hospital. Volunteers help with practical tasks like preparing meals, light paperwork or shopping as well as offering companionship, helping to build confidence and independence.
Lynne McLean, senior service manager for health and social care in Lincolnshire said: “Our volunteers give people that extra bit of support to get people back on their feet. Sometimes the support we offer is practical, such as help with shopping or filling in paper work whereas other times it’s a cup of tea and chat, which can make a huge difference at a difficult time.
“If you have a few hours to spare and would like help others in your community we would love to hear from you.”
