Community Companions are trained volunteers, who offer one-to-one support to build up a friendship and encourage confidence to be able to then meet face-to-face out in their local community.
Anyone who is lonely or isolated and is aged 18+ living in the Bradford district or Craven can access the service.
You will spend quality time, weekly with one of our trained volunteer befrienders. There will be an initial introductory phone call which will lead to meeting face-to-face in your local community.
We currently offer support in English, Punjabi and Urdu. Other languages may be available, so please do ask prior to submitting a referral.
