The befriending service on Hayling is going from strength to strength.
The number of volunteer befrienders has increased, allowing more people than ever, who need a friendly visit, to be seen.
Word is spreading and more helpers are needed. The service is appealing for people who can give an hour or two of their time to get in touch. In particular, they are looking for those who could play board games, cards, chess etc.
Hayling Voluntary Services also wants to hear from those who would benefit from having someone to pop round and have a natter over a cup of tea. Our Befrienders do take people out if possible. We ask for the same voluntary donations that we ask for our medically related trips as we have to cover our Befrienders expenses.
All the befrienders provide references and are checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service ( DBS ) If you would like a visit, contact our coordinator on 02392 464730 or you can find out more at the HVS Office at the Health Centre in Elm Grove.
(When the office is empty please leave a message on the phone ).
