Who are Community Companions?

Our companions are volunteers who provide a befriending role to the family by offering companionship to those with support needs enabling the carer to take some time away from their caring role, whilst having peace of mind knowing someone is at home, please note as volunteers they are unable to provide personal hands-on care which includes giving medication or assistance with toileting.
