One of the important services that CHEER offers to our clients is the opportunity to have a regular home visit from a volunteer.
A commitment of one hour a week to visit an elderly person in their home for a cup of tea and a chat can put an end to isolation and loneliness.
Many of our volunteers build up a friendship that sees both parties benefiting from the experience.
