We need your help to match some of our Feed the Birds Telford volunteers to people in the community who are lonely or socially isolated.

By Kerry Davies

Several people in Telford who feel lonely or are socially isolated have benefited from a regular visit from one of our Feed the Birds Telford volunteers.

The volunteers visit clients weekly to clean and refill feeders as well as chatting about what birds they have seen in between visits.

We have several new recruits but now we need to match them to people in the community who are lonely or socially isolated. This is where we need your help.

All volunteers have completed training and are DBS checked and all bird feeding equipment is provided. All you need to do is let us know of someone who you think can benefit from a visit from our Feed the Birds Telford volunteers.

We are hoping to match volunteers to clients that live locally to reduce travel costs but any referral would be considered.

If you have any questions or think you know someone who can benefit drop me an email at kerry.davies@telford.gov.uk
