Age Concern Auckland – Creating Crucial Social Connections

Each week 554 Age Concern volunteers across Auckland visit an older person, spending time with them to help alleviate their loneliness and isolation. We have been delivering this service for almost 30 years and during that time around 15,000 volunteers have made this special connection. Our thanks to you all.

This is one of our clients Jenny at Westhaven Marina. Jenny used to walk along there often when she was younger but hadn’t seen the new broad walk. Her volunteer Brigid took Jenny for a walk there. The boat in the photo, which is for sale, caught Jenny’s eye, unfortunately the $1.5m price tag is a little too steep!
