Visiting

 
Visiting - Befriending someone who has no family or friends nearby.

Volunteers visit people who are isolated & could really benefit from some regular company.

A friendly chat over a cup of tea can brighten up the day of someone who is isolated or lonely & the person visiting often tells us that they find it extremely gratifying too. Volunteers are matched to a person requesting a visitor & an initial visit is arranged. Once the first visit has taken place, if all has gone well then HANDS likes visits to take place on a regular basis. Once a week is the norm but the occasional person prefers once a fortnight. Days & times can be arranged between the visitor & the person being visited.
