Fit over Fifty are a not for profit social enterprise who have been supporting people over the age of 50 in Tameside for over 4 years by providing chair based exercise and a chaperon service.

Both these social integration programmes help local people with isolation and mobility and they are now looking for volunteers to help them.

If you are a car owner and can spare a few hours of your time, or maybe you are looking to gain some experience for your CV, then they would really like to hear from you, with a view to joining in with their chaperon project; escorting people to the shops, the local parks or just helping the elderly get out and about on a short accompanied walk round the local community. Volunteers will be required to stay with them for up to 2 or 3 hours, when necessary.

The charity are looking for people to work in Tameside, Woodley and Romiley – just on the edge of Gee Cross, Stockport.

‘Fit over fifty’ will pay petrol expenses, provide in house training and give support while you are with them. The group are looking for volunteers to join them for a few hours a week, not evening or weekends, and of course you must have a car!
