VAC is a local charity that provides a number of different services aimed at improving local lives. Over the recent months, VAC has developed a range of volunteering activities including the new mystery shopper project and support for the local organisation Weekend Care.
VAC has recently launched its newest pilot project called Molly and Bill; an acronym of ‘making our lives lively and being involved in local life’. The project is working with 5 Calderdale residential care homes and the Community Place at Calderdale Royal. VAC is partnering with the venues to provide an activity programme for their residents and guests. Creative and meaningful activities will be delivered across the venues by community groups, individuals and volunteers.
Liz North, co-ordinator for Molly and Bill, said
“We are really excited to be delivering this innovative project with our partners and are looking forward to working together to provide additional meaningful activities in the venues and also supporting residents to feel more connected to their local community. We are hoping this will be of real benefit to all involved.”
To make the project a success, VAC are currently recruiting volunteers who will support the activity provision, escort guests to community resources and provide one to one befriending.
In addition, VAC are also looking for organisations and individuals who have an interest in delivering creative, meaningful and healthy activities and be part of an extensive and exciting programme for residents and guests to access.
