Befriender (CSVA)

← Back to search results

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.
