Our services include:


Befriending / Sitting Service:


Sitting Volunteers

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


Befriending Volunteers

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

Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless
