AN “URGENT” call has gone out for befriending volunteers in Belper.
The Amber Valley Community Voluntary Service (AVCVS) said it desperately needs more people to come forward to provide the service - which offers companionship and support for socially isolated people living in their own home.
Mandy Rafferty, community and marketing development worker, for AVCVS, said: “As little as one hour of your time could make all the difference. We have a number of people in the Amber Valley area who are waiting for someone to talk to.”
