Our aim is to tackle poverty in all its forms through the provision of practical assistance to those in need. The concept of need is broader than financial hardship, so visiting people who are sick, lonely, in prison, or suffering from addiction is also a significant proportion of our work.
Our 10,000 volunteer members, motivated by their faith, are committed to meaningful and long term befriending. We offer friendship and practical help to all we visit, without regard to faith, ethnicity, status or sexual orientation. As we visit people in their homes we have strict safeguarding policies and procedures and all visiting members must hold a DBS certificate.
Our core friendship service is complemented by additional areas of activity – community support projects, youth work, holiday provision and overseas aid.
