Holborn Community Association is pleased to announce that there will be a new Befriending Scheme Organiser at Millman Street Community Centre. Kate will be setting up a service for lonely and isolated people over 55 in the Holborn area. She will also be recruiting volunteers, with whom they will be matched.
The hope is to facilitate better integration in the community for hitherto isolated folks. Volunteers will visit them on a weekly basis.
“I’m very excited to have this new job working at HCA,” Kate said.
Originally a native of Kingston-Upon-Hull, Kate previously worked at Age UK in Brent, and Victim Support in Tower Hamlets, in many different roles.
