Community Projects – Supporting Older People
Community projects includes a range of volunteer led services for some of the most vulnerable groups in our community. This includes befriending and driving services for isolated older people and a Volunteer Transport Service in Ards and North Down for at risk children and younger people. If you would like more information on these projects visit the ‘Volunteer with us’ section.

Volunteer Now also supports the network of volunteer led older persons groups and forums in Belfast through our capacity building work including:

  • West Belfast 50+ Forum
  • Greater Shankill Senior Citizens Forum
  • G6

This helps to sustain and strengthen a network of groups to combat growing social isolation amongst older people by encouraging older people to take an active role in their communities. Dedicated volunteers are at the heart of community projects which showcase how their efforts can make a positive difference to the lives of the most marginalised sections of our society.
