Rural Wisdom – A Vision for Change


I am receiving an increasing number of requests from people in the village who need assistance with prescription collection; this could be a one-off occasion, as when individuals become unwell, or it could be a weekly request. If you feel this is something you would be able to help with,  please complete the attached application form. All volunteers will be fully insured, receive training, Identification, a DBS check and continued support. If you would like any additional information, please do give me a call.  I have attached the poster as a png, please share on social media and amongst your contacts. We really do need more volunteers to meet the need for support.

Many Thanks

Graham Sherwood

Before the Covid19 pandemic, the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales delivered training sessions for older people and those that work with them to help recognise and challenge ageism and age discrimination. The training has now been adapted to an online session specifically for older people (those aged 60 and over). 


The session will be run on Zoom and will last for two hours including a break. The session will be held on 31 March 10.30am-12.30pm.


If you are aged 60 or over and would like to book a place at the session, please use the link below:
