National Volunteers’ Week: Make a difference

This National Volunteers’ Week, Cheshire East gives a massive thanks to all volunteers who support it, but highlighting a new service that helps people in Cheshire East after a hospital stay.

The first few weeks at home are crucial for recovery, but not everyone has family or friends nearby to help with everyday tasks. This is where our new volunteer service steps in. We match volunteers with people who need support for around six weeks. This could include:

  • Shopping and errands
  • Pet care
  • Light housework
  • Companionship
  • Help attending appointments

These little things can make a big difference in someone’s physical and mental well-being.

Focus on our communities:

Our service focuses on discharges from Macclesfield and Crewe Leighton hospitals, with volunteers supporting people in their own homes across Cheshire East.

Interested in volunteering?

If you’re 18 or over and passionate about helping others, we’d love to hear from you! We’ll conduct an enhanced DBS check, but having a criminal record doesn’t necessarily disqualify you.

Join us!

Email or call Helena or Alex on 01625 374050 for a chat.

Together, we can make a real difference in people’s lives!
