SOCIAL SUPPORT

Social Support services refer to assistance provided by a companion (volunteer), either within the home environment or while a person is accessing community services or facilities.

The service is primarily directed towards meeting the person’s need for social contact and/or accompaniment in order to participate in community life.

These services may include:

  • One to one support to attend a social activity of the client’s choice
  • Sharing an interest with a small group of people, supported by volunteers
  • Minor home maintenance e.g. changing light globes
  • Friendly visiting
  • Letter writing on your behalf
  • Shopping, bill paying and banking where the client is accompanied by the worker
  • Men’s Group outings once a month to venues that interest our male clients
  • Group outings to local points of entertainment. We welcome suggestions from clients.
