Companionship for Older People

Companionship for Older People

The Champion for Older Person group is a network of agencies that support older people in the region. These groups have identified that we have older people in our community feeling lonely and isolated. Based on this need Community Networks secured funding from the Elsie and Ray Armstrong Charitable Trust to run a pilot project to develop a companionship project. This entails a volunteer meeting with an older person approximately once a week to offer companionship and a small amount of help where needed such as a visit to the shops. The volunteer does not provide a care service for the older person.
