We understand how beneficial personal connections can be, whether it’s taking part in enjoyable social activities that suit your individual needs, interests and abilities, or just knowing that someone is ‘popping in’ to spend time with you.
Our Volunteer Services are aimed at helping you maintain your social wellbeing.
People living at home alone can often feel unsafe or lonely, particularly if it is hard to get out and about. A daily telephone call from a volunteer to check in to ensure that everything is fine is a service we can provide to people in need.
Receiving a regular friendly phone call can make a huge difference in our lives. Our volunteers share stories about their lives, learn about interests, talk about news, sport, hobbies etc.,
