The Social Prescribing Team at the Blackmore Vale Practice are looking for volunteers to train as ‘Falls Buddies”.

This role entails weekly contact (approx. 1 hour) for up to 8 weeks with someone who is at risk of falling. Volunteers will support confidence and help people to remain independent. Most importantly they will be a friendly face and a listening ear.

The training will cover how to offer advice on balance and muscle strengthening exercises as well as mindfulness techniques to reduce anxiety.

Contact [email protected] or any of the Social Prescribing Team by ringing 01747 856700 and ask to speak to a member of the Team.
