Compeer volunteers provide friendship to someone who is lonely because they’ve had difficulty with their mental health. Compeer needs volunteers to spend an hour a week catching up with a new friend. Friends meet for simple social activities such as having coffee, going for a walk, or visiting a local attraction. Training and ongoing support is provided, and you will be connected to a welcoming community of volunteers through social events and catch-ups. Your friendship can make a big difference to your new friend’s quality of life, and help reduce the isolation and stigma associated with mental illness. We welcome all applications from men and women aged 18+, however we are particularly in need of male volunteers aged 40 – 70 at this current time. “Compeer is a simple, meaningful way of making a difference.” – Volunteer.
