Through a 1:1 match, Compeer Volunteering seeks to combine friendship with practical support to reduce loneliness and isolation and promote independence and recovery.
Through planned activities within pairs, Compeer volunteers can help their match build confidence, self-esteem, and motivation to make positive steps towards better mental wellbeing. Activities could include accompanying your match to an appointment, helping with shopping, gardening, or exercise, as well as social activities such as having a friendly chat over a cup of coffee or going to the cinema. The type of activity would depend largely on the individual need of your match, and so taking a flexible approach is vital.
Due to the current restrictions, this role would begin as telephone-based, with a view to move to face-to-face meetings at their home and/or in the community once lockdown has been lifted.

Jami was established in 1989 by parents, relatives and friends of people who experienced mental health difficulties. In 2013 Jami became responsible for the community’s non-residential mental health provision, creating a single mental health service for the Jewish community.
Symptoms of mental ill health affect all areas of our lives and can lead to social isolation, as we may withdraw from seeing friends and family, going to work, or participating in hobbies we once enjoyed. Jami recognises the profound impact that meaningful connections can have on wellbeing and living a happy and fulfilled life, as well as how they can facilitate recovery and re-integration within the community.
