Covid-19 has highlighted the number of people the live within our community that are lonely or feel vulnerable. The emergency response work that Four Greens Community Trust has delivered during this pandemic has helped us to develop a strategy to be able to support these people and offer a 'Befriending' service.
Within the next 3-months Four Greens Community Trust should have funding secured to be able to offer both online and phone support as well as additional opportunities to meet face-to-face at our Hub in Whitleigh and Manadon Sports Hub.
This is an emerging service and is going to rely on the goodwill of the volunteer base that the Trust has developed to support its work during Covid-19.
The service aims to integrate its community so that 'Befriending' becomes part of day-to-day life.
