Feelgood Factory appeal for volunteers to help the lonely in the community
by Tom Martin

NETHERTON Feelgood Factory has put out an urgent appeal to find volunteers who would be willing to help lonely people in the community.

Organisers of the community-led healthy living centre has launched a new scheme which involves locals branching out and making contact with those living in the area who are alone.

Volunteers can become ‘befrienders', which involves them being matched with people who find it difficult to leave their homes.

They could also be ‘Group Supporters' and be tasked with helping out in activities such as a social club and craft group.

Sandra Duncan at the Feelgood Factory said: “Loneliness is a big problem for many people of different ages and backgrounds in our society today. Unlike so many other problems that we see in the world about us, however, this is one that we can all help to alleviate by becoming good neighbours.

”The Feelgood Factory is giving local people the support and resources to really make a difference. The demand for help is huge and we desperately need people who will help us with this task.“

For more information those interested should contact the Feelgood Factory on 0151 291 8010.
