Sutherland Care Forum

Through this free, confidential befriending service we aim to help people of all ages isolated by disability or health issues feel part of their community. Contact with a volunteer friend can make all the difference to a lonely person who may be helped with shopping, transport and company to appointments etc. Much valued respite may also be provided to unpaid carers. Through a contract with Highland Hospice we support people with a palliative care diagnosis and offer a No One Dies Alone (NODA)service.

Information for volunteers

We offer and operate our services through our much valued volunteers. Anyone with an hour or two to spare who have an interest in helping others are offered free training and support. They can choose offer to visit, telephone or help with transport, or any mixture of those at times to suit themselves. In return they receive great job satisfaction, meeting new people themselves and are paid any mileage costs incurred.
