Community Circles is working with care homes across Wigan and Leigh helping people stay connected to whatever matters to them.
We are looking for volunteers who could give a couple of hours a month to make a difference in someone’s life. Volunteers are matched to people thinking about best location, at a time that suits you and with someone who you have a shared interest with.
Alice lives in a care home and when we chatted together, she said she would love to get more fresh air and enjoy a walk along the canal. Alice also told us about how she used to enjoy visiting the local primary school to listen to the children practice their reading. Alice was introduced to volunteer Fiona, who lives nearby and also enjoys walking and fresh air.
Alice and Fiona really enjoy each other’s company and go for walks together. Alice is now also enjoying visits from her local primary school, helping the children with their reading.
