Reach Out

Reach Out - Support volunteer for Older people

‘Reach Out is a project that provides support to those who have recently been discharged from hospital. Reach Out can assist people by linking them up with a volunteer in their neighbourhood who can offer companionship and practical support when they return home.


During the current COVID-19 pandemic, some of our activities have been adapted in line with social distancing guidance from the government. Many volunteers are currently providing support to people over the phone whilst others have been able to collect groceries or prescriptions and drop them off to the person they’re supporting. Some volunteers are walking people’s dogs for them or posting letters. Many of our matches are making plans to meet face to face once it is safe to do so – so there is something to look forward to whilst home visits aren’t possible at present.’
