How this service is delivered

  • Face-to-face

    Volunteers are matched with people living with life limiting illnesses and visit them in their home, nursing home, their environment of choice. People accessing transport for treatment or appointments, will be picked up from their home, driven to the appointment or treatment and returned home at the finish, if that is what is required.
