A Pastoral Team has started in Malling U3A to be available to members who are unwell, at home or in hospital, and who might appreciate a visit or a telephone call. We are, we believe, a welcoming U3A and a caring Organisation which has concern for its members. It may well be that there are other situations in which a listening ear might be welcomed by members – bereavement, worry about someone else, or wanting to share a concern.
We do not want to intrude upon personal lives, but we do want to make ourselves available should the need arise and if members feel it is appropriate. The members of the Team are willing to be approached individually if you know them, but an approach may be made through Derek Carpenter who will happily put you in touch with who you feel is most appropriate. Be assured that confidentiality will be maintained within the Team.
