We can help with the following

Transport

Our volunteers can take you to local appointments or social events if you find it difficult to use public transport.

Shopping

If shopping has become difficult then we may be able to help. Perhaps a volunteer could accompany you to the local shops or we may be able to help you set up a regular online order that can be delivered to your door.

Visiting

If you live alone and find it hard to get out you might like a social visit from one of our volunteers. A cup of tea and a chat could help you feel you more connected to the community.

Outings

We arrange periodic social outings which are very popular with our service users.

What we cannot do

We are not able to offer regular transport to day care centres or out patient appointments at East Surrey and Worthing Hospitals. We are not able to help with household tasks or personal care. We also cannot help with child care.

How it works

Before providing a service we need to visit you. This is in order to obtain basic details, to tell you more about how the service operates, and to make sure we can meet your needs. If possible, we find it helps if you have a family member present. Once we have confirmed that we are able to assist, call our number when you need assistance giving us as much notice as possible and our Volunteer Co-ordinator will do their best to arrange a volunteer to assist.
