How to get support
Would you like a Compassionate Neighbour?
If you are living with a chronic, long-term or terminal illness, or elderly and experiencing loneliness or social isolation, or if you care for someone that fits this criteria, you can access this project. Compassionate Neighbours are fully trained to provide their time, companionship and support to people living in their community. They are matched to people wanting support according to their hobbies, interests and geography. All support is provided free of charge. Compassionate Neighbours can support you by:
- Visit weekly for a cup of tea and a chat, offering
friendship and a listening ear
- Help you do the things you like doing
- Help you stay connected to your friends and the community
