Warm Connections is a service providing emotional and practical support to isolated and vulnerable residents of North Area Council.
Anyone referred to Warm Connections will receive a home visit by a Social Inclusion Worker who will work with them to identify their needs or concerns and agree an action plan to connect them into their community.
They may also be introduced to a Volunteer Community Befriender who will provide friendship and support for up to 8 weeks e.g. introduce them to interest groups or accompany them to join leisure activities.
“I never realised I had such good friends on my doorstep.”
