IN A bid to assist the elderly with paperwork, Age Concern Hampshire is appealing for volunteers.

The charity recognises the challenges the elderly face when grappling with online forms, particularly those living alone or facing health issues.

Offering practical support with these tasks enables isolated individuals to access crucial services and benefits, like attendance allowance or blue badges.

Tailored home visits are provided by the charity’s information service to aid with this daunting process.
