Visits at home or help to get involved in activities and social networks
Across the City there are volunteers who are trained and thoroughly vetted who can visit you to chat, go for a walk, visit a cafe or to help you find activities you would like to get involved in. They can help you work out how to get there or could attend with you to get you started. Volunteers are matched to interests and preferences.
There are also befriending groups where like-minded people meet for afternoon tea and conversation. Transport is usually available for these.
‘I really look forward to my visits. My world has got so much bigger since I have had my visitor.’
– Amaresh, aged 76
