Volunteering with Wythenshawe Wanderers is a great opportunity to help provide services to those most in need in your neighbourhood. It can also be a very rewarding activity that will utilise and enhance your skills and experience. Wythenshawe Wanderers volunteer drivers make a real difference to people’s lives across Wythenshawe.

Following the latest Coronavirus (Covid-19) guidelines, we wanted to update you on our services.
As many of our services take place in public places such as pubs, social clubs and football clubs we are bound by their advice and guidance. Recent news on Monday 16th March advised non essential travel and avoiding pubs, restaurants etc. So, we have decided, during this period of uncertainty, to cancel our trip to Chester and to postpone breakfast, coffee mornings and lunches for the next few weeks. We have decided to extend our telephone befriending service to any self isolating person who feels that a regular “how are you” phone call would benefit them. Just a 15 minute phone call can change a person’s day and make a real difference.

Fifty Three neighbourhoods were recognised for their age friendly practices or working towards being more age friendly. Practices that include connecting older people to their community, listening to what older people have to say about the services that impact on their lives and positivism around ageing.
