Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) have recently given an update on their Good Neighbours service and support.
Helen Kirkham, Service Manager, writes:
As a service, we continue to provide safe and well telephone befriending calls, assisted shopping and have recently introduced social distancing garden visits to anyone who would prefer face-to-face support.
Our referral process and criteria remain the same as before, and we are able to offer support to anyone aged 55 and over who is living alone and is socially isolated across the West Sussex area.
We are also able to support carers who have become isolated through their role, however we are unable to offer respite care.
We are still taking new referrals at this time.
