If you would like to volunteer for any of the below projects, please download our application form here.
Our services include:
Befriending / Sitting Service:
The sitting service was set up to allow carers to get out and have a 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. ON HOLD AT MOMENT
Our volunteers also befriend people in their area who are lonely, isolated or housebound. Calling in for a weekly chat and a cuppa goes a long way. ON HOLD AT MOMENT
The volunteer buddy will provide short term support to individuals who have not left their home for some time and have lost confidence to go out.
Telephone Befriending Volunteer
The Telephone volunteer will call the client to provide a regular telephone befriending service.
Volunteer Community Connectors
