Nene Valley Community Action (NVCA) is a local charity offering a range of services to support communities and organisations. The project engages volunteers to act as Befrienders to visit elderly and frail adults, who may be isolated from the community, in their own home.
NVCA primarily cover the area of Rushden, Raunds, Stanwick through to Thrapston but clients from other areas will be considered.
All of the volunteers have gone through a rigorous process which includes:
The befrienders will be able to visit on a weekly basis and will chat, watch TV, sit with someone in their garden or play a board game etc but will not undertake any personal or domestic roles.
