Compassionate Neighbours 

People living with loneliness and isolation could often do with some extra support. Compassionate Neighbours can really make a difference.

Compassionate Neighbours offers a group of trained neighbours who give up their time and companionship for local people struggling with social isolation. 

If you, or someone you know, would like some extra support, Compassionate Neighbours can help:

  • By arranging regular visits
  • By offering companionship, emotional support and a listening ear
  • By helping you, or someone you know, do the things you like doing
  • By helping you, or someone you know, to stay connected to the community as well as family and friends

Our Community Development Manager, Christine Novelli said:

“We know that a lot of people can become socially isolated, and that there are people facing death and dying on their own in our communities. We also know that there is a desire in our communities to be there for one another, and Compassionate Neighbours is about unlocking and enabling this to happen.”
