Summary

CANConnect are looking for volunteers to help us set up groups to foster community and human connections, and to support people experiencing loneliness.

Detailed description

CAN Connect is a service supporting people experiencing loneliness and isolation by fostering community connections. We want to create opportunities for people to get together and enjoy a hobby within their local community, and you can help us do that!


Do you have a skill and want to share this with others? Get in touch with us and we can explore different opportunities! We are very open to new or existing ideas.


The types of groups we have in mind:


Fishing group

Walking group

Games group

Mental health support group

Reading group

Coffee and chat groups

Arts and craft groups


These groups will be run at a variety of locations and are all set up to support and encourage people experiencing loneliness and isolation to get out and about.


If you enjoy any of the above activities (or any others please let us know) and would be happy giving some time to encourage and support others to enjoy them as well please get in touch.


We are ideally leading many of our groups towards being peer led, volunteers are needed to provide a supportive and welcoming environment


If you are over 18 years of age, patient, welcoming and have free time we would love to hear from you.


Training is provided for all our volunteers and we work with the ethos that volunteering should be fun.
