"I have a Volunteer Visitor and it's been really good. I find having someone to talk to really helpful, we always have a good chat. I don't go far these days so enjoy having someone to chat to. She's a lovely lady, she's also interesting to listen to."

What is Volunteer Visiting?

Older people, usually those living alone and experiencing isolation, are visited by our Volunteers who offer company and social support. Volunteer Visitors are from all walks of life, both younger and older, and make regular home visits, staying and chatting for 1-3 hours a week. Some visits are more flexible and are agreed between both parties.

If you are interested in this service, either for yourself or for a friend or family member, then please contact Jess on the details below.

Professionals may also make referrals by telephone.

Please note that due to the continuing situation with COVID 19, being matched with a volunteer is taking longer than usual.
