Communicare in Southampton is a friendly, local charity that enriches the quality of life of lonely and isolated people in Southampton. Our committed ‘Communiteers’ (volunteers) act as good neighbours; they offer practical and emotional support in a variety of ways at no cost to the client although donations towards the cost of the service are welcome.
Communiteers offer help including telephone and face to face befriending (regular visiting), help to get out and about for a coffee or walk in the park, transport in volunteer’s cars to medical appointments and social groups, short term shopping and one-off practical tasks such as DIY and gardening. Unfortunately Communicare cannot offer personal care, legal advice or regular cleaning and the availability of help is always dependent on the availability of our volunteers. We do aim to meet as many requests as we can.
