Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Volunteer befriending with people with a learning disability.

Volunteer befrienders

Can you dedicate a couple of hours a week / fortnight to making friends with somebody with a learning disability. You might meet for coffee, go for a walk or pop out for lunch. As a volunteer befriender, you can help somebody gain confidence, greater independence,
and a better social life.


Can you meet with a person once a week for three weeks to introduce them to a new activity? This enables the person with a learning disability to access the opportunity independently in the future, where they can make new friends, learn skills, become more
healthy and grow in confidence.

If you are a friendly person looking to do more in your community, then get in touch.
