Accredited Visitor Service

Would You Like More Company?

Our Accredited Visiting Service provides regular visits to older people who would like more company, to reduce social isolation and loneliness.


Our visitors are volunteers who are keen to spend time with an older person for about an hour each week to enjoy conversation and shared interests and activities. Our volunteer visitors are from a variety of backgrounds and ages. What they have in common is warmth, friendliness and a desire to make a difference in the life of an older person.

The service is for people over 65 (60 in Counties Manukau), who live independently in the community and would like more company.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss having a volunteer visitor or know of anyone who would benefit from this service.
