Building up a network of Neighbours wanting to connect and build a friendship with someone who is lonely, at risk of isolation or nearing end of life through age or illness in their local community. Neighbours are matched by their shared interest and experiences, suggesting an hour a week social interaction. Training helps build up confidence, communication skills and looks at issues such as boundaries and confidentiality. Neighbours must be over 18yrs and willing to undergo the DBS process; ongoing support is provided.
