CHEER is a small local charity for older people which has been serving the local community for over 65 years.

We help and support older people who need help with completing the paperwork required to claim the benefits they are entitled to; and we arrange befriending relationships and social events to help older people lead full, dignified and independent lives.

We rely on a dedicated team of staff, trustees and volunteers to deliver these essential and beneficial services. Our current treasurer is standing down and we seek new trustee to take on this role
