Friend In Need are an independent charity seeking to provide for older adults, living in the Borough of Barnet and in particular, East & New Barnet.
At present, they offer various activities such as exercise classes, yoga, tai-chi, dance, IT training etc, so that older adults may have a friendly environment in which they can meet & enjoy doing things together. They also offer a hot lunch Mon -Thurs & Sat. Note that there is a reasonable charge for lunch & each activity.
Friend In Need would not be able to do the work it does without the support of its volunteers who work alongside FIN staff as part of a team. Personalised inductions, ongoing supervision and training are available for each volunteer.
Volunteer roles include activity centre helpers, befrienders, receptionists, DIY helpers, mini bus drivers and travel assistants.
If you can spare just a couple of hours and would be interested in joining the team, then please just pop in for a chat. Further information is available on the website.
