Bridge the generation gap with a friendly chat

by Age Concern Birmingham

An exciting opportunity to make a real difference to your own and someone else’s life through intergenerational befriending. Whether you're 18 or 48, there's still a generational gap between you and a 78 year old.
Our intergenerational project aims to combat isolation and bridge the gap through a variety of communication methods on a flexible basis.
Other volunteering opportunities in our community café/charity shop or organisation are also available based on your location.
A DBS check and payment of actual expenses will depend on the role you choose.
