Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire
Friendly, knowledgeable, independent and part of the community, village wardens can help find practical solutions to life’s challenges.
Village wardens are British Red Cross staff who use their knowledge of local services to help older people in their community. They are in touch with the Herefordshire Signposting Scheme and can connect people to a wide range of local services, helping people be more independent and remain in their own homes.
Your village warden can:
Help outside the home – for instance a village warden can shop, organise transport to hospital or other vital appointments, collect prescriptions or walk the dog.
Help inside the home – by popping in for a chat, your village warden can listen to concerns or worries and begin to help you find solutions.
Encourage – by introducing and accompanying people to clubs and local activities, a village warden can provide support, as daily routines are re-established and confidence returns.
Provide information – your village warden can help you gain access to financial and practical support service, help you fill out forms, pay bills and write letters.
Follow up – when the worst is over, your village warden can stay in touch, helping you remain independent and in contact with your community.
