The core of Didsbury Good Neighbours is our one to one befriending service. Click here to view or download our leaflet for printing (opens in a new window). This service works by assigning each older person a befriender, who provides friendly conversation and companionship on a regular basis. From phone calls, home visits, trips out and transport to Didsbury Good Neighbour’s activities.
Our befriending volunteers offer a genuine life-line and essential assistance to individuals in the Didsbury area who would otherwise be housebound and isolated.
In addition to one to one friendship volunteers provide a range of ‘as and when’ services including:
- - Emergency shopping;
- - Accompanied trips;
- - Outings;
- - Wheelchair assistance;
- - Simple DIY;
- - Gardening
