PLEASE TELL YOUR ELDERLY NEIGHBOURS – Give them a phone call
Over the last few days, social workers have reported a number of suspicious volunteers targeting vulnerable people in Worcestershire.
The County Council’s advice is to take normal precautions but don’t be afraid to accept offers of help from those you know and trust.
We advise people ask to see identification, and not allow anyone in their homes unless they are certain they are genuine.
Anyone who believes they have been visited by a bogus volunteer should contact the police.
Remember you can also apply for genuine help via Worcestershire County Council’s website http://worcestershire.gov.uk/here2help for by giving them a call 01905 768053.
