become a silver social volunteer today 

Make a difference to older people in your local community and become a Silver Social Volunteer, part of Breckland Council's Silver Social Project. 

The Project is delivering an ambitious programme of daytime events to community venues across Breckland, promoting participation and independent living to older people in rural communities. Until 2020, workshops and performances held by professional artists are taking place in Ashill, Necton, Shipdham, Mattishall, Harling, Dereham, Attleborough, Swaffham, Watton and Thetford. We are looking for a team of enthusiastic and welcoming volunteers to help support the events in your area and ensure the Project reaches its target audience. 

If you are passionate about empowering others and enhancing the events offering in your area, join us today.
