Embracing Age is a Christian charity working towards a world where older people are valued, connected, and full of hope. Sending cards to older people in care homes helps reduce loneliness and isolation, builds connection with their local community and lets them know people are thinking of them. 

We are currently seeking volunteers to use their crafting skills to create handmade items such as cards to be given to care home residents.


Creative: Do you enjoy making craft items/cards?

Time management: Have you got the time to create between 5 and 10 cards per month?

Communication: Would you be able to liaise with the local Embracing Age coordinator or other volunteers to arrange the delivery or distribution of the cards to care homes?
