Detailed description

My name is Steven, I love to go out and about to the theatre, visiting interesting places and listening to classical music. I also love Liverpool football club and I want to visit the stadium one day. My other hobby is visiting classic car shows. I’m a mature man and I like to be independent, I do go out on my own but it would be fun to find a friend to come on adventures with me, someone who shares my interests and I can have a good chat with.


Do you enjoy the finer things in life? Classical music, a trip to the ballet or visiting stately homes? If so then you might enjoy volunteering as a buddy to Steven!


If you'd like to volunteer with us or find out more before you apply, please get in touch! Our volunteers play a vital role in our work and in return, we support them with:

A regular commitment would be appreciated.
