Currently, this would mean keeping in regular contact by phone (at least weekly) and being willing to help out with small practical tasks. These tasks could be things like picking up a prescription or purchasing small amounts of emergency shopping.As the Covid 19 restrictions start to ease, we would like you to support your matched resident to help them re-engage with society.

Support at this time may mean activities such as meeting up for a coffee or going for a walk in the park.If you are interested in being a Buddy, we will aim to match you with a resident within your own or a nearby postcode.
