All it takes is an hour every week to help someone feel less alone.
Community volunteers (Mountbatten Neighbours) help to tackle loneliness by visiting a person in their local area once a week, offering support, friendship and a listening ear.
There are hundreds of people across our Hampshire communities who are at risk of becoming lonely and isolated through life-limiting illness, frailty or old age. If you believe nobody should have to feel alone, this is the role for you.

There are many ways that volunteering will benefit you, as well as the patients and families you help to support.
Andy shares the memory of a friendship he made as part of the Neighbours scheme, and addresses the question: 'Why do it when you know they're going to die?'
