The Association, through individual clubs, aims to make it easier for people living in Teesdale to socialise, to get together with old friends and to make new ones. Clubs meet weekly for members to talk, have lunch and enjoy a change of scenery. Each Club has a Leader whose job is to organise the club including different activities and events like occasional trips out and visits from speakers. The leader can also organise transport to and from the club if you need it.
All the clubs have a willing band of volunteers who help by serving the food and drinks, clearing and washing up and giving free lifts etc.
If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to speak to your Club Leader, however the Association also has a Community Worker. She may be able to help you with some of those problems, big and small, which crop up.
The Role of our Community Worker –
Madeleine regularly attends each club but is happy to visit you at your home if you prefer. Anything you talk about with Madeleine will be held in the strictest of confidence!
Here is a brief list of some of the things she can help you with:-
Hospital and Doctor visits
Arranging for help with odd jobs e.g. Handy Van
Links to the Citizens Advice Bureau, Utility Services, Health and Social Care
Support and help with independent living
Disability car badges
This list doesn’t cover everything and you may just want help with some small issue or need someone to talk to – that is all part of her job.
So, if there is anything Madeleine can help you with, speak to her on her next visit, or call her on 01833 695822 and she will do her best to help.
