Our Travelling Companionship service matches lonely and isolated older people with a trained volunteer travelling companion. We aim to reduce loneliness by helping people to reconnect with their local communities, friends, and family, and to help them to take steps in leaving their homes to use public transport, community transport, and taxis. We also support them in walking and cycling, and help them to address the barriers they face in going out, such as anxiety and a lack of confidence.
Our new video follows Catherine and volunteer Travel Companion, Andrew, on their journey to getting Catherine out and about again. We hope you are inspired by Catherine and Andrew today!
