Supporting vulnerable residents during Covid-19: John

posted in: Latest News | 0

We are sharing a few stories from some of the people we’ve supported during Covid-19.

“I used to volunteer myself and enjoyed helping people. I’m now on the other side of the fence with volunteers helping me. I have found the Richmond AID service really valuable, particularly as I am self-isolating and live on my own. I am really enjoying chatting to my new phone buddy, he lives locally and has shared interests. I genuinely look forward to him calling me and it really does help to relieve my isolation” – John

We all have to be so careful not to fall for a scam, or spread misinformation.

Here’s how to prevent it.

Everyone needs other people, but not everyone has someone. To befriend simply means to ‘be friendly’ to someone.

Do you feel lonely and isolated? You’re not the only person who feels that way. Befriending helps people to build reliable, social relationships that help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.
