Community Companions

Community Companions provide support to St Barnabas patients who may feel isolated or find some tasks more difficult to complete on their own. Support could include a cup of tea and chat, going out for a coffee or helping someone with their shopping. Companions can also provide company for a patient so a carer can take a break for a couple of hours.

To find out more, come to our recruitment open morning on Wednesday 9 October from 10am.
