Befriending & Sitting
The sitting service was set up to allow carers to get out and have a well earned break. They may be caring for someone 24 hours a day without any respite and this service enables them to do whatever they wish for a while without worrying about their loved one.
Our volunteers befriend people in their area who are lonely, isolated or housebound. Calling in for a weekly chat and a cuppa goes a long way. Note:- Task is visiting in the home, not taking client out. Not for those people in Residential / Nursing Homes or in Warden Assisted Housing.
ON HOLD AT THE MOMENT - We are working hard to restart these services and we are trying to secure funding
