Honley Volunteer Teams

Our goal is to have back up teams where feasible, albeit we’re finding that the optimum number of volunteers with whom to work is 40.

Group 2b:       Supporting Honleyers in isolation:

  • Being a phone buddy.  Many of our Honleyers don’t like to ask for help but we find by ringing them twice a week or so, just for a chat, we're finding out so much about our amazing Honleyers.

Working in partnership with our churches

Our churches are doing an amazing job in our village, whether in delivering fresh food or ensuring that a friendly voice or face is to hand when needed..  If we find that one of our persons in need referrals would benefit from pastoral support, we refer these through to Martin and Ian at St Mary’s and Elim, who in turn liaise with churches in Honley and beyond (we've found that some of our Honleyers are indeed Brockholes parishioners and it’s been reassuring for them and us to know that Martin/Ian have facilitated this important contact).
