Strathcarron Compassionate Neighbours are volunteers from our local communities who can help people to make connections in a number of different ways. In this time of social distancing and shielding it can feel difficult to feel connected but our Compassionate Neighbours are here to help.

Reconnecting with social networks

Although groups have stopped meeting at the moment, our Compassionate Neighbours can help you connect with your friends and family in different ways e.g. via Zoom or Skype. A Compassionate Neighbour can also be a telephone befriender.

If you would like to find out more about this, please call our Community Advice and Listening Line on 01324 827383.

Thinking ahead and making plans for the future

Thinking about the future and having sensitive conversations with loved ones can be difficult and daunting. It can sometimes help to talk things over first with someone who is caring and trustworthy, but not emotionally involved. Our Compassionate Neighbours have had training in supporting people to think about their plans and preferences for the future. If you would like to make an arrangement to chat to someone about this, or if you would like a copy of the All About Me book, please phone our Community Advice and Listening Line on 01324 827383.
