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
