Should any people be identified by befriending volunteers as needing support such as food, medication, deliveries or maybe they are looking to get involved in an online keep fit class, craft making or music group for example, they will be referred to an Our Lancashire staff member who will try and put them in touch with someone offering those services, either through the neighbourhood hubs or through groups known about.
