Assist and Connect

Assist and Connect is a community based, face to face support service where volunteers are matched with a member of their community who requires support.

Support could take the form of (but not limited to): 

  • Access to social interaction and opportunity to meet new people 
  • Access to information, advice, guidance and other support
  • Low level support around the house
  • Feeling safe in the neighbourhood
  • Managing personal affairs
  • Support functional independence. 

A key element of the work is supporting clients to access other existing local services that meet their needs in the community. 

This service works closely with partners and stakeholders in all sectors, who have expert knowledge of their local communities as well as the services and support available.
