Care And Share Companionship

Charity registered in Scotland SC048873

Care and Share Companionship provides companionship support to people over the age of 60 who are living in isolation or loneliness. Support is offered by our trained, PVG checked volunteers on a 1-1 basis which may include an introduction to a local group of interest, weekly, fortnightly or monthly. We offer a flexible and personalised approach to address the needs of the person we are supporting, such as shopping, health appointments or visiting family or friends. We also offer telephone support and respite for carers. We aim to provide a service that helps improve health and well being to make people feel valued and part of their community.

Current opportunity

The aim of Care and Share Companionship is to provide support to people over the age of 60 who are living in isolation or loneliness in the Kirkcaldy area. We offer volunteer companionship to help improve health, well-being and confidence. Volunteer companions provide face to face, telephone or shopping support giving their time from 30 minutes to two or three hours. Going for short walks together, attending groups of interest, going to local cafes for tea/coffee or just chatting with a friend will build a rapport and establish mutual respect and understanding giving both the Friend and Volunteer a positive experience.
