In Better Times
Some of our Befriendees have been with SHAC for many years. Some when they were more mobile coming to our Tea and Chatter groups. We arrange transport by volunteers to take them around to a volunteer host’s house to have tea, sandwiches, and cake.
It is a proper social event and they really enjoy meeting different guests and the hosting family. Many are wary of going out alone, so this has built up a trusting relationship with them so it’s a natural transition when they some become more frail to take on a SHAC Volunteer Befriender to call on them at home.
