We offer support and friendship to make a difference to the lives of isolated older people in their own homes.
The Wellbeing Programme will be offered to people who have been identified as being lonely, isolated, lacking in confidence or requiring support to access community activities, including every older person who requests a ‘befriending’ type service.
What is the Wellbeing Service?
The Wellbeing Programme is in place to help support older people in the community who may feel isolated, lonely or just generally lacking the confidence to get out and about. Even if you are not very mobile we will usually be able to help.
If you are eligible for the service we will work with you to identify the goals to help improve your wellbeing and independence.
We match a volunteer with you to provide support over the coming months to help you achieve your personal goals.
There is no charge to be part of the programme and all our volunteers are trained and DBS checked.
How can I access the service?
It is easy to be referred to the Wellbeing Programme, just contact our offices by phone or email. You can enquiry for yourself or someone else.
Once registered we will make an appointment to meet with you and discuss any specific concerns or goals you may have that will help your wellbeing.
