Community Links SW CIC
We are aiming to reduce loneliness and isolation in people of all ages, by:
- Providing one to one befriending in person or by telephone
- Running a weekly coffee group
- Working with Devon Carers on A Time for You, a sitting service that provides respite for carers.
- Offering Cognitive Stimulation Therapy a NICE approved talking therapy for people affected by mild to moderate dementia.
All our volunteers are recruited safely, DBS checked, trained and have regular support and supervision.
Information for volunteers
We have opportunities for people who would like offer one to one company for a person in their home. If you do not live in our area you can offer telephone befriending. Alternatively you may wish to help at our weekly coffee group. We also have opportunities for people to train as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy facilitators.
We have a Befriending and Social Inclusion Coordinator who will be part of your recruitment, will provide training and continue to support you as a volunteer with Community Links.
