2019 Volunteer Recruitment drive – 31st January 2019
The response to Making Connections new year volunteer recruitment drive showed huge interest in supporting older people experiencing loneliness and isolation in our community.
The charity hosted induction training for new volunteers on January 29th. Training was provided by Mary O’Donohue and participants engaged in a lively discussion about the negative health effects of loneliness.
They shared insights, asked thought provoking questions and spoke about their own reasons for signing up to volunteer with the programme in 2019.
