Could you give up a couple of hours a week to really make a difference to someone's life? Community Companion volunteers provide invaluable social and practical support support to our patients.
Liam has been visiting Bob for 6 months, and every week they go for a coffee in their usual spot. Bob always looks forward to his Companion visiting as it means he’s able to get out and about. He says, “It’s wonderful to have Liam come along, we click, and we clicked right from the start”.
Liam enjoys visiting Bob just as much, “When I go out on a Wednesday, I just see it as going for a coffee with a mate. I think that’s how we see each other”.
