Referrals

Getting in touch

If you are housebound, if your circumstances have recently changed through bereavement or ill-health, or if you feel lonely or isolated, then regular visits from a volunteer befriender may help you ………

A Coordinator will visit you to discuss befriending and get to know about your particular needs.  If you wish to be introduced to a befriender then this will be done as soon as we are able. All our volunteer befrienders are interviewed and security checked and we also take up references. Your volunteer will visit you on a regular basis to suit your needs. The project Coordinator will also keep in regular contact to make sure everything is running smoothly.

We also welcome enquiries from family members, neighbours and friends.  A Coordinator will, however only make an initial visit to someone with their consent.

Professional referrals

Referrals can also come from any professional involved in an older person's care e.g. health workers, social services and other voluntary organisations.  Referrers can call the project and discuss a potential referral with the Coordinators or complete a referral form giving details about the client's health, circumstances and support needs. Referrals should only be made with the client's consent.
