Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

Due to Covid, front-line clubs/support groups have been forced to close for the foreseeable future. More people are staying home-social isolation has a huge detrimental effect on individual’s health and well-being.

Prior to the pandemic, H4All had a handful of volunteers making regular, vital calls to clients. Since the start of Covid this service has grown considerably.
