The local charity Cotswold Friends who work to reduce isolation and support independent living are continuing their excellent work at this time. They have asked us to publicise this to our community.
If you know of anyone who requires their support or who is willing to volunteer please don’t hesitate to refer them to Cotswold Friends.
They can help with transport to medical appointments, telephone befriending and shopping services. Over 2,000 people have been contacted and supported in the last few weeks. Cotswold Friends will continue to take referrals from people who need telephone befriending, shopping and transport as needed. At this point they are also fast tracking all new volunteers. For more information on support, to volunteer or to make a donation please look at their website https://www.cotswoldfriends.org/
