North Shrewsbury Friendly Neighbours is a registered charity situated in Castlefields, Shrewsbury. Our services are provided by our Co-ordinator, Julie and a team of dedicated locally recruited volunteers, who receive full training, on-going support and expenses.
We address the needs of clients through the following means:
• Practical support
– help with shopping, collecting prescriptions or pensions, transport to appointments, dog walking, etc.
• Emotional support
– befriending the isolated and bereaved, support after stay in hospital, respite and support to carers.
– our Friendship Group provides a relaxed, supportive environment where participants enjoy a variety of activities and, just as important, the company of others.
– to an appropriate statutory or non-statutory organisation where a longer term need is identified.
Each volunteer is subject to a Police CRB check and two satisfactory references. If you would like to volunteer, please visit our volunteering pages.
