Be a volunteer visitor

We all need a bit of company sometimes.

Do you have the empathy and commitment to offer friendship to someone in your local area?

We need volunteers to visit people in their own homes, for say, an hour, once a week.

We’ll give you some basic training and arrange a police check so that all you need to do is look forward to meeting a new friend, sharing experiences, news and chat and making someone’s life that bit brighter.

We’re looking for people:-

• With the empathy and commitment to make new friends
• Who will take time to get to know their friend – and commit to visiting them on a regular basis
• Who will ‘take people as they come’ and let them settle into the friendship
• Who may know what it’s like to feel lonely themselves and understand how it feels and will feel all the richer for meeting new people in their community and making new connections.

If this strikes a chord with you, email Sue Black sue.peopleforyou@grcc.org.uk or call on 07810 630167 to find out more.
