About Opportunity

Community Connections is a low level service provided by volunteers aimed at reducing isolation and offering assistance to enable people to continue to live as independently as possible.

Volunteering with us you will :

  • Help build the person's confidence and self esteem

  • Support them in building relationships with others
  • Encourage them to take part in local activities or groups in their community.
