St Joseph's Hospice Compassionate Neighbours project

Compassionate Neighbours is a social movement, founded by St Joseph’s Hospice in 2014, to help reduce loneliness and social isolation with the people they work with. 

Compassionate neighbours are trained volunteers offering friendship and a listening ear to people living in their community, who are at the end of life through age or illness.

So far, they they have trained over 320 compassionate neighbours who are empowered to provide support
to others in their local community.

Our training is informal, fun and inspirational, in fact it’s unlike any other training you might have been on!
They give you the opportunity to explore how you can use your compassion to help others and give you the confidence
to support people in your community. 

You’ll develop skills, meet other like-minded Compassionate Neighbours and, most importantly, have a great time.
