Volunteer 1

Our Good Neighbours services provide support to older people, people with dementia, and those with disabilities in Newham, delivered by trained volunteers. We are accredited by the Befriending and Mentoring Foundation.

 

Dementia befriending

The aim of the service is to reduce isolation and increase social contact, self-confidence and choice for elderly residents with dementia in the Newham community. In addition, the service offers carers respite and on-going befriending support through regular home visits.

 

Supporting digital inclusion – Take the Tablet

We provide opportunities for older people and others to learn to use tablet devices in a social setting at a number of community venues across Newham.

 

The Life Album project

The Life Album project, funded by Big Lottery in 2014-15, was an opportunity for people referred by Newham Memory Clinic to develop their life story, using iPads and a reminiscence app in a social setting, working with volunteers. Please download the evaluation report on learning here.

For more information on any of these services please telephone or contact us.
