The Visiting Service offers friendship and companionship with a weekly visit from a volunteer

The Visiting Service is for people over 65 who live in their own homes, who no longer drive, who would like more company and who are able to contribute to a mutually beneficial relationship.

Would you like more company?

The Visiting Service has caring volunteers who share your interests and would love to get to know you.

Do you know an older person who would like more company?

Family or friends can refer an older person, or couple. Just be sure to ask their permission first.
