Friendly Visiting aims to increase the social life of isolated, frail, elderly or disabled persons through a one to one friendship with a visiting volunteer. Following the initial interview and the completion of paperwork formalities, volunteers undertake relevant training with the program’s coordinator. Regular visits of one to two hours a week or a fortnight is the usual commitment to clients. Friendly Visiting also holds a monthly support meeting for volunteers and offers inclusion to a congenial community minded group with no age or gender limitations.
