1940s, vintage tea parties, Curry night fundraiser, Beach parties, Cake sales, Children’s Christmas party, toy sales and a Harvest festival event.
These events have enabled us to recruit new volunteers, build our volunteers skills & knowledge, and also fundraise for our charity and celebrate successes.
Since 2014and is still ongoing A partnership between B-Inspired and Braunstone Blues, was formed, which meant that referrals for vulnerable older people could be sent through, to enable us to engage and establish a befriending service, Also other agencies refer through, such as Age UK, social services, care navigators, housing officers, neighbours, friends and families.
Befriender volunteers also undergo training, monitoring and evaluation. Following their initial training, they carry out a minimum of 12 hours volunteering at TalkTime, this helps us to see how they communicate with others and to give them the experience they need to move forward.
