Life is better shared

A friendly visit a day keeps the doctor away – or so we believe! In Great Company matches people in need of support to like-minded volunteers to help maintain independence and connection to community.

Why choose In Great Company?

Everyone deserves belly laughs, a chat over a cuppa, fish and chips by the sea, or just someone to share stories and run errands with. We all need a helping hand at times, and we all benefit from a little great company. Each In Great Company visit feels like:

Rekindling an old hobby or interest

Passing on a skill you’re proud of and good at!

Learning something new together

Accessing your community again

Making and sharing a meal with others

Sharing inside jokes and belly laughs

From volunteer to friend

John had spent 30 Christmases alone before In Great Company came along. Now Michele has the privilege of visiting John every week, and the two have become friends. Watch their story!
