WE’RE UNDER ATTACK!
Having recently attended training in Cyber Security with Davina, we realised that we are under constant attack from scammers, phishing emails, whalers, trawlers, unknown friends and family members from overseas, and the opportunity to work with an overseas barrister offering us £1.5 million for doing absolutely nothing. The money linked to these fraudulent crimes in […]
Childcare is in the news, and we are too.
With the national childcare issues affecting the sector being so well publicised in the news and in the budget, we too are in the news following the announcement of closing our setting in Brecon. We are so sad that it has come to this, especially as we are well aware of how this will affect […]

Hello everyone. Welcome to my blog page. This is where I’ll be sharing my thoughts about the sector we’re working in, and events taking place within the organisation.
We have exciting opportunities to volunteer with our Companions Team.
If you can give a little of your time, you can make a real difference to someone.
We have 2 roles within the Team, as a Telephone Companion or a Loose Limbs Group Leader………………..very different roles that both have a huge impact on people’s lives.
We are recruiting Telephone Companions to join our Team. Our Companions are a lifeline for those feeling lonely and isolated or simply in need of someone to have a chat with. We are looking for empathetic, positive people with a good sense of humour to help brighten up someone’s day or just to be there when somebody needs someone to listen. We are growing and developing the Team so that we have Companions available 7 days a week and as a Telephone Companion, you can choose a time to suit you and work from wherever you are.
Our Loose Limbs groups are looking for volunteers to lead the sessions. These fun social groups mix music, movement and a natter over a cuppa. The seated exercise is suitable for all, and our relaxed and friendly attitude creates a positive and welcoming environment. We are recruiting Leaders for our existing groups but also looking to support new groups to start up. If you think your local community would benefit from Loose Limbs sessions, please get in touch with us.
