The Preston North End Community and Education Trust are on the lookout for volunteers to be part of a programme which supports older people living with dementia, depression and loneliness.
Preston North End is joining forces with the Sporting Memories Network by providing reminiscence and interactive sessions in a variety of different settings in Preston.
The sessions will engage with older people in Preston who are living with dementia, depression and loneliness in social activities, largely through sport, with the Trust and the football club looking to improve its provisions for minority groups in Preston.
The network is already working in the likes of Leyland and surrounding areas, and the Trust are delighted to now be in the process of organising sessions in the heart of Preston.
To help facilitate and support these sessions and individuals, the Trust is looking to recruit enthusiastic volunteers to be a part of a programme which will look to empower participants by helping them connect with others and their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.
The volunteer role is ideal for anybody who may be retired and looking for a different purpose and a flexible role to their weekly routine.
However, we would also welcome carers or anybody else who is available on a weekly or bi weekly basis on a weekday.
Sessions and times are yet to be confirmed, but we are encouraging those who are interested to register their interest by contacting the Trust on 01772 693309, or emailing Community@pne.com stating their contact details and availability.
