By making a donation to Age Connects during the Big Give campaign you will be helping to support our Community Volunteer Support Programme.
This project aims to tackle social isolation and loneliness in old age, often caused by things that make life difficult, including, low income, poor health, limited transport and difficulty in accessing services and support.
Community Volunteer Support currently supports hundreds of older people and delivers volunteer led activities that provide practical and emotional support for older people living across Cardiff and the Vale.
With your support, we can reach out to many more hundreds of those in need, many of whom are vulnerable, isolated and in poverty, offering vital but basic help with transport, shopping, outings and simply providing social interaction.
The Big Give Christmas Challenge, founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Alec Reed CBE, is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign. For the seven days of 27th November – 4th December, it will offer charities such as ours the opportunity to have their donation doubled on theBigGive.org.uk.
As a long-established and trusted local charity dedicated to supporting local people. Age Connects Cardiff and the Vale services are out there where it matters most in the communities we serve, they are accessible and make a real difference to the lives of so many older people. Our vision is to live in a society where older people are respected and enabled to meet their aspirations. As one of our service users recently said “sometimes it’s enough just to know someone cares”.
