These are the services that our volunteers offer:

service offers a weekly phone call for a chat and support.
can help alleviate transport difficulties and are often needed to help with attending events, support groups or essential health appointments.
provide one-to-one counselling support to Carers who feel themselves in need of this specialist form of therapy as a result of their caring role.
Volunteers are an essential and valued part of our service. Our volunteers receive free training to ensure they are prepared before they begin volunteering and are given on-going support and training to ensure they are fully supported and confident in their role.
