Companionship, Community & Social Support

Sometimes life circumstances can limit your ability to get out and about in your community but we can give you a hand to do the things you enjoy, whatever they are.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle includes having connections and relationships with other people and participating in community life.  Whether it's to visit the shops, meet a friend at a cafe or join in workshops or school, a sense of belonging and shared experiences improves your overall quality of life.

Our social support services include:

  • Accompanied shopping, bill paying or banking
  • Transport to social activities such as your local club or markets
  • Having a home visit from one of our carers to talk or share interests such as music, gardening and world events

With a little help from us, you can be involved in your community in all kinds of meaningful ways including developing your artistic, cultural, physical and social interests, as well as maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
