Compassionate Neighbour

Location: in your own community

Could you spare an hour a week to help us make sure that anyone who is nearing the end of life has someone to call a friend?

Compassionate Neighbours visit a community member for around an hour a week. They get up to all sorts of things – chatting over a cup of tea, talking about hobbies, sharing stories about their local area, sometimes going out together to places they will both enjoy.

We will provide you with training and you will be supported by a team based at the Hospice, as well as by the wider network of Compassionate Neighbours – we have trained nearly 200 people to date but demand for support keeps growing, especially with the additional challenges of COVID-19.

If you’d like to find out more:
– drop us a line at
– fill out an application form at

We’ll have a chat with you and share training dates – our dates for early 2022 are Saturday 15 January, Friday 11 February and Wednesday 9 March.
