What to expect then:
Our job is then to find out what is available to meet your needs, not to advise you what to do; it's your choice and we are here to help. However, if you are worried about taking the next steps, we are happy to make telephone calls with you on your behalf. It is our aim to connect you with the services and activities that will let you live a happier, healthier and independent life.
We will often match you with a local volunteer who has been police-checked, trained and knows what services and activities are available in your area. They can meet you in your home, locally or at a drop-in-session. Things become much clearer when you have time to explore what you need - over a cup of tea.
