NHS England wants 100,000 people to sign a pledge saying they'll look in on an elderly friend or neighbour over winter months.
An army of good samaritans is being asked to care for the nation's elderly this winter. NHS England wants 100 thousand people to sign a pledge saying they'll look in on an elderly friend or neighbour over the next few months. Robin Rolls is the National Director of the Outlook Trust - a ministry to the elderly.
He told Premier's Marcus Jones on the News Hour why he's giving his support to the project.
A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.Set up a monthly gift
