Happy at Home Partnership, Daventry Volunteers
Happy at Home provides a lifeline to lonely, isolated, older people across West Northamptonshire, supporting them to live happily, healthily, safely, and independently in their homes for as long as possible. Each older person will be matched with a befriender volunteer who will build a relationship with them and offer individualised support e.g. signposting, trips out, paperwork, shopping.
We recruit, support, and train our volunteers who build relationships with older people and in doing so, strengthen their communities.
Information for volunteers
We ask our volunteers to give as little as an hour a week to visit and build a relationship with a lonely elderly person, helping support them to live a more fulfilling life, and strengthening connections with their community. Volunteers also give them access to information, support and services, that are available locally.
In return we will offer full training and ongoing support.
