What We Offer

We offer carers looking after a person aged 18 and over, a service that will support the carer and enhance their quality of life by offering the cared for person a Buddy while the carer accesses health related appointments or one of our activities at the centre.

Our Buddy Project Workers will come out and assess you and outline the criteria that you must meet.

Benefits for the Carer

It is important for a carer’s health and well-being that they do not feel isolated.

The Buddying Service offers the opportunity to meet new people and make friendships.

If you are interested in this service or require more information then give us a call or why not drop into the centre and have a chat with one of our Buddy Project Workers.
