Outreach Services

Kindness and Compassion can go a long way …

Working with a team of trained staff and volunteers, we visit people who experience enduring mental health challenges and illnesses (currently only in Hampshire), relieving loneliness and doing what we can to help our Members reach their own personal goals and live their best life.

Through offering friendship and help with tasks which our Members may be struggling to manage – such as cooking, online access, budgeting, incoming mail, benefits, social and community interaction, and hobbies – lives can be enriched.

After an initial 3-month free trial period, a Member Charge of £30 per calendar month is introduced, to contribute towards the running costs of the service. Hammersley Homes is a charity, reliant upon fundraising initiatives to support our service’s sustainably. We are keen to expand our service to support more of the people we work with, and to continue to raise awareness of the challenges faced by our Member group.

Our volunteers who provide this service, are not necessarily local, but can support our Members almost in the same way as our Outreach Visitors can, providing friendship and taking on any simple tasks and dealing with things that might be a struggle for some people. They will go away and research issues that may be particularly challenging, and come back with suggestions. A simple phone call can brighten a day and provide much needed help and support.
