Crossroads Care Surrey
Our amazing volunteers help us to support people across all areas of Surrey.
Our telephone befriending service is incredibly valuable to people who are feeling lonely and isolated at home.
A befriending call from a volunteer could last anything from 15 minutes to half an hour and will enable carers and people feeling lonely and isolated to benefit from friendly support, conversation, and someone to just check in on their wellbeing. Our volunteers are carefully matched to ensure they speak to someone with similar interests.
All our volunteers are very friendly and are DBS and reference checked and have all been given training.
Other Volunteer support we offer includes:
Companionship in the Home - We spend a few hours a week with someone who may be isolated and feeling lonely.
Community Support - We can Collect shopping and prescriptions for you if you are vulnerable.
