What does this service offer:

This service pairs disabled users up with volunteers. Volunteers support disabled people to take walks, reduce isolation, and manage their gardens.

What we offer:

If you struggle to get out of the home or maintain your garden, or if you feel lonely and cut off from your community then we have volunteers who can help. Volunteers give their time to help disabled members of their community. We can help with walking assistance, telephone befriending, support to access community groups or activities, or basic gardening services.

How it helps: Our volunteer project reduces social isolation, encourages clients to get our of their homes and into their communities, and greatly improves mental and physical wellbeing. Requirements: Must live in the city or Hackney and be a disabled person.

Befriender Volunteer

You will be paired with someone who you can spend time with, either over the phone or in the local community! If you want a walking friend you will be matched with someone nearby.
