Our caring commitment extends beyond helping those with a life-limiting illness.
Since 2010 our Compassionate Communities initiative has created more than 20 volunteer networks across Shropshire, offering a dedicated befriending service to people who need it most.
Becoming frail or living with a long term illness can lead to a person becoming socially isolated and vulnerable. This, in turn, often leads to chronic loneliness which, in itself, can lead to crisis in their health.
Co Co makes a difference by working with local people and their GPs’ surgery to develop a network of local volunteers who will visit and befriend a frail and vulnerable person in their community, helping them reconnect with those around them.
Our community knowledge and expertise in working with volunteers means that we are well placed to help these communities create their networks and become self-sufficient in offering their services locally.
If you would like our help to create your own Co Co network, please get in touch.
