CONNEXIONS CARE – Crieff Connexions’ aim is to connect people, services and life opportunities. We know that from time to time people in Crieff can need a bit more help – particularly during this Covid pandemic. So we would like to put you in touch with someone who can help to get shopping, collect a prescription, walk your dog, tidy your garden…. Just complete an online form to let us know what help you need. We will then try to match you up with someone who can help. If you’d like to know more – or if you are able to volunteer – please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jill Gurung: Tel – 07434 671905 Email – firstname.lastname@example.org
CONNEXIONS CIRCLE – Crieff Connexions’ aim is to connect people, services and life opportunities. We are gathering a team of volunteers, who can provide a range of services to our community. Whatever your ability, we’d love to hear from you and direct you to appropriate volunteering opportunities, either with us or in the community. If you’d like to know more – or if you are able to volunteer – please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jill Gurung: Tel – 07434 671905 Email – email@example.com
CHATTY CONNEXIONS – Crieff Connexions’ can provide distance befriending by phone during these times of restrictions. A telephone call every week can make such a difference to someone who is isolated, living alone, or lonely. Building a strong befriending relationship can help reduce social isolation for the befriended, build a sense of purpose, and reduce vulnerability. As a befriender you would be doing something new and worthwhile, become more involved in our community and gain support experience. Training will be offered, and credit would be provided for a CV if you are seeking employment, looking to change jobs, or completing UCAS forms. You would need to go through PVG registration, although there would be no cost for you. If you are interested in this very worthwhile opportunity, or if you or someone you know could benefit from this, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jill Gurung: Tel – 07434 671905 Email – firstname.lastname@example.org
