Most Covid restrictions have now ended, but heartbreakingly, many older people have lost their confidence in going out and are still stuck inside. We urgently need volunteers, in all areas of Powys, to support lonely and isolated older people to enjoy getting outside again after Covid-19. Thank you so much for your support.
