Home Visits Support Programme
Working with a team of trained volunteers, we visit vulnerable people who suffer with mental health challenges, in their own homes in the New Forest and surrounding areas, relieving loneliness and doing what we can to help them to live their best life. Through offering a hand of friendship and helping them with any tasks they may be struggling with – such as shopping, cooking, helping with incoming mail, online access, budgeting, benefits, liaising with care workers, sorting and clearing, social interaction, hobbies or simply going out for a walk or a drive – lives can be enriched with kindness and compassion.
We plan to extend this service to wider areas of Hampshire, and eventually throughout the UK.
Telephone Support Programme
Our volunteers who provide this service, are not necessarily local, but can support our clients almost in the same way as our visiting volunteers 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.
