V is for Volunteering
At Advise Tree we are always looking for opportunities to collaborate around social impact work, and form partnerships that allow us to really make a difference.
We are currently involved in a project in collaboration with AGE UK to work with older people that are suffering from loneliness and social isolation in the UK more so now during this pandemic. We are working with our clients to help them identify areas where they may need support and connect them with local services.
Over 1 million older people in the UK say they always or often feel lonely, and loneliness is associated with depression, sleep problems, impaired cognitive health, heightened vascular resistance, hypertension, psychological stress, and mental health problems among others.
As coaches we have been helping with low mood, isolation, loneliness, coping strategies, building confidence, improve communication skills and well being. This is an ongoing process of transformation, any improvement in resilience and well-being is a win.
