Could you be a compassionate neighbour?

Could you be a compassionate neighbour?

Compassionate Neighbours are trained volunteers offering friendship and a listening ear to elderly, isolated and lonely people living in their community.  Compassionate Neighbours are supported and matched with local community members who have been referred to the program.

What would you do?

·         Pop round for a cup of tea and a chat

·         Help someone stay connected to their friends and the community

·         Be part of a network of other Compassionate Neighbours in your community

We all have a fantastic opportunity to be part of this new program.  Princess Alice Hospice is rolling out Compassionate Neighbours across South West London and Surrey and are offering caring communities and individuals training and support.  The program's aim is to encourage more people to be compassionate and neighbourly and to grow everyone's skills and confidence to help each other.

If you are an individual or a group who would be interested in finding out more please contact the volunteering department on 01372 361856 or email volunteering@pah.org.uk  Training can be arranged locally for 10 or more attendees.
