Wetherby In Support of the Elderly (WiSE) is looking for volunteers to help with its valuable services in the area.

It offers a confidential information and advice service covering a variety of issues and can sign post to support services, help with form filling, etc.

“Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, use hidden talents and gain a real sense of community,” said Carole McLelland, WiSE Volunteer and Community Coordinator.

“If you have as little as an hour to spare each week or month you could help to make a real difference. Come along and meet us, make new friends, use your skills and gain new ones.”

Other services include the WiSE Dementia Cafe which a Meet-up Monday, from 1-3pm at St Joseph’s Church Hall.

WiSE would welcome help with activities, games and refreshments. Volunteers with previous experience of Dementia among family and friends would be particularly welcome, although this is not essential.
