Compassionate Neighbours are trained volunteers offering friendship and a listening ear to people living in their community.
Could you make a difference in your local community?
Can you spare an hour a week?
Most of us care. But when it comes to supporting someone in our community who is approaching the end of life, we often don’t know how best to help.
Compassionate Neighbours is an exciting new social movement that encourages people to support friends, neighbours or even strangers in their community at the end of their lives. We’re helping to nurture compassionate communities by offering free training to individuals or groups who would like to reach out to people in their community.
The training covers the following areas.
The training can be offered at a location that suits you over two full days, four half days, or six shorter sessions. For more information about this opportunity please take a look at our volunteering roles.
Below are some examples of other courses we offer. See our prospectus for more details.
