Support and Befriending

Home visits, loneliness, assistance, benefits

What does it do?

Home Visiting

We can arrange for one of our experienced team to visit you at your home.

Home Visitors can assess client’s needs in their own surroundings and are able to refer onto Social Services or other organisations with more specific skills for your needs.

They can make referrals to other community services such as dementia support and Befriending (for those seeking an opportunity to socialise).

Assistance can be provided with applications for additional benefits and payments including:
- Attendance Allowance
- Personal Independence Payment Forms
- Pension Credits
- Carers Allowance
- Council Tax
- Housing Support
- Disabled Badge applications


Befrienders are volunteers who spare an hour or two a week to visit a lonely or isolated older person.

Initially, we visit the client to establish his or her needs and interests. We then try to find a suitable befriender who will make regular visits. This is a hugely rewarding experience for our clients AND the befrienders.  We currently have over 70 clients benefiting from this service.
