A WEST Norfolk charity is looking for volunteers to befriend isolated older people in the Upwell and Outwell areas.

West Norfolk Befriending is a local registered charity that provides a local service to socially isolated older people (over 60). The isolation may be due to becoming a carer, or due to a physical disability or sensory impairment.

The charity is extending its service to Upwell and Outwell and are recruiting volunteers in the local area. Appropriate training and support will be offered.
