- All volunteers undergo a DBS check

"I don't know where to start to thank you for all you have done for me. You have listened to me for hours on that telephone when I did not feel I could trust anyone. Thank you for all you have done for me."
There are four types of support available:
Regular home visits by volunteers.
Weekly telephone call by volunteers.
Support to participate in social and physical activity programmes.
