Supporting People

Free befriending and social support for people in Swansea aged 55+

What does it do?

Support includes:

  • Friendship
  • Listening
  • Problem Solving
  • Advice and Information
  • Promoting Independence
  • Social Integration

Volunteers and visiting assistants visit people in their own homes on a weekly/fortnightly basis, with visits usually lasting between 1- 2 hours. We also have a telephone service, with volunteers and staff phoning clients on a regular weekly/fortnightly basis. The project also holds events throughout the year.

Who it is for?

The project operates a floating support type service, offering long term, low level support, to help maintain independence and well being.

This service is entirely free, offering client led support to people in the City and County of Swansea, over 55 years of age and living on their own.

The project operates Monday to Friday 9 - 5
