Our volunteers visit, help and befriend people who have become isolated or out of touch with the community around them.
We can offer ongoing befriending support to anyone who feels isolated or lonely in Frome and the surrounding villages.
The people Active and In Touch support have become isolated and lonely through the circumstances that life has thrown at them, maybe caring for a partner for years, moving to a new area, or just not feeling confident to try new things alone. With the help of our volunteer befrienders we can make a real difference. Our volunteers meet people and spend time with them, find out their needs and interests, and help them to find their own place in the community.
Active and In Touch is supported by Frome Town Council, Mendip Health Connectors & local businesses who can help pass information on to those who need it, and feeds into the wealth of activities that Frome has to offer.
From 1 Jan A&IT will partner with Frome Community Drivers (FCD). FCD supports people who need transport to carry out essential activities like hospital visits, delivery of prescriptions & shopping. Their website for support or to volunteer is here: https://fromecommunitydrivers.org.uk/
