Volunteer for friendship

We are looking for volunteers to offer friendship and support to local people.

CoCo takes its name from ‘compassionate communities’ and is a befriending scheme for anyone who’s finding it hard to reach out and get the help or social contact they need.

CoCo volunteers are carefully matched with people with similar interests. Friendship and companionship are the priority of the scheme, but volunteers may also help in a variety of ways. They might assist someone with shopping, give respite to a carer, help sort out bills and paperwork, join someone for a walk or an outing, or simply sit and chat over a cup of tea.

Our next CoCo volunteer induction will be on Wednesday 1 September.

If you’d like to sign up to help or are interested to find out more, contact Kate Slater, Mayfair’s Volunteer Coordinator on 01694 722077 or at kate.slater@mayfaircentre.org.uk. And if you can’t do this first date, do still reach out – more induction sessions will be running later in the year.
