social visits

Befriending Service
               

Enabling people to maintain social links is an important element of our wellbeing, especially when this continues a personal connection to our community of members.

We introduced our social visiting service following a comment from one of our beneficiary couples that our volunteer visitor was the only guest they had had that year.

We welcome applications from people who either want to receive regular visits, or who would like to volunteer to make them.  A mutual benefit often arises between the parties, who we carefully match on the basis of common interests, including employment history or aspirations, and as this service operates outside of our grant-making activities, there is no discussion of users’ financial means.

You might be interested in our social visiting service if you are:

  • A retired mechanical engineer looking to maintain social links with other mechanical engineers
  • An individual who would welcome the opportunity to increase their social contact with others
  • Someone who wants to contribute to our thriving community of members
Please contact us for further information.
