Making Connections befriending volunteers and the older people they visit are enjoying long awaited in-person reunions this month. We are hearing uplifting stories about café and market visits but most of all, it’s the joy of face-to-face interaction after the long months of isolation.

Although volunteer phone calls were a lifeline to many, the presence of someone who cares – offers a quality of connection that no words can express. A big thanks to all our volunteers for helping us weather this storm together.

If you, or an older person you know are feeling a little isolated and would like the support of a volunteer, feel free to call Making Connections on 01 2951053.
