Our Big Lottery funded community volunteer programme has been set up to support people in the community who are living with advanced ill health, their carers and people who are bereaved. This is a people powered project and our Befrienders are all volunteers. We support people face to face and by phone and our aim is to reduce isolation and increase connection in community.
We are focussed on developing volunteer and community led projects that bring the community together to support each other at difficult times. Currently we offer our Saturday Socials that run on the last Saturday of every month at the Hospice – contact us to find out more.
As we grow, we welcome new volunteers and people who are passionate about coming together and welcoming everyone. If you are interested in finding out more, please call 01424 445177 or email us.
Volunteering has made my life worthwhile – knowing I can support someone at a tough time.
