Community Visiting

About this scheme

“I look forward to my volunteer visiting me. It’s lovely to see cheerful face and have a chat and a cuppa.”

The Community Visiting Scheme supports people who feel socially isolated, through regular visits from a volunteer.
The scheme operates across Northallerton, Bedale and surrounding villages.


How does it work?

Volunteers usually visit people on a weekly basis for an hour or two at a time. Visiting times are flexible and are arranged for a time that is convenient for both parties.

All volunteers have to supply references and undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.


How much will it cost?

Hambleton Community Action offers this scheme free of charge. 
Volunteer travel expenses are reimbursed.
