Compassionate Neighbours volunteers
Could you befriend someone in your local community?
Patients and families
Compassionate Neighbours provide social and emotional support and companionship to people who are experiencing loneliness or social isolation as a result of living with a life-limiting illness or bereavement.
After training Compassionate Neighbours are matched with people based on location, interests and character, with the aim of creating genuine, mutually-beneficial friendships.
Compassionate Neighbours can help others by:
- visiting regularly for a chat, offering friendship and a listening ear
- attending one of our Community Hubs/Compassionate Cafés
- helping them stay connected to the community
- visiting local places (such as a café, garden centre or shops)
- sharing an activity or hobby
