A health trust is calling on Fylde coast residents to give up some time to help make a big difference to the lives of others.

Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust – the body which provides mental health services in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre – is seeking volunteers.

There are a variety of different volunteer roles within the trust and tasks could include working in an office, working as a dining companion or as an interpreter or facilitating meetings.

The time people spend as volunteers is flexible and roles can work around an individual’s commitments.

Denise Carson, volunteer service manager, said: “Volunteers really allow teams to enhance the services the trust provides and contribute so much when it comes to providing excellent care.

“We currently have more than 300 volunteers of all ages and from different walks of life.”
