volunteer to visit or befriend housebound or lonelyLoneliness and isolation is one of the greatest problems that older people face. We arrange for the older person to receive a regular volunteer visitor for about an hour once a week or fortnight.

Over a period of time a good friendship develops which can make a significant impact of both parties.  This should develop into an enjoyable experience for both parties.

volunteer to collect and deliver library booksThe housebound library service requires volunteers to collect books from the library and deliver them to housebound people in the Inverness and Nairn areas. This is an excellent opportunity for people who are interested in reading to interact with a person who has similar interests.

Once the volunteer is made aware of the clients reading preference, they go to the library, select appropriate books, take them to the client and take others back to the library. This will make a difference to the housebound person's life.

                             The time involved is approximately 1 to 2 hours per fortnight.
