Did you know that GPs are trying to avoid prescribing drugs to those suffering from anxiety, depression, social isolation and loneliness in our community?

This is being replaced with ‘social prescribing’.  Volunteers in our area are helping people overcome their difficulties with activity and social interaction. There are countless different ways to help – from going to activity groups or just being someone to talk to.

This is one of our most rewarding volunteer roles. Can you help?

If you’re confident and friendly, why not call in and see us at the Parish Council Offices in High Street, Heathfield on Mondays 10.00-3.00, call us on 01435 517043 or email volunteer@hdvc.org.uk and we’ll be happy to explain.  We look forward to seeing you.
