Cheshire Buddy and
Changing Lives Together are delighted to announce the continuation of their Buddying & Befriending Scheme, thanks to funding from The Lottery’s Reaching Communities Fund.
This will enable the Team to build upon the outstanding work established over the past 18 months, and will enable us to help more people and improve more lives within our communities.
The New Scheme will be operating until 30th November 2020. It will be available across Cheshire West & Cheshire East to those who are over 50* and experiencing loneliness and / or social isolation as a result of the current crisis situation.
The Scheme aims to provide some of the most vulnerable members of our community with a Volunteer Telephone Befriender for friendly phone chats once or twice a week to help alleviate feelings of loneliness. Volunteers can also assist with shopping and medication collection etc.
