Volunteering with Contact is an extremely rewarding experience. Volunteers visit people isolated in their homes by disability or mobility problems - individuals who might not otherwise have any contact with the outside world. Our visitors generally spend one hour a week during term with their visitee, offering conversation and companionship.
The person you visit will not have been assigned at random - in many cases we are able to pair people up with similar interests. A typical visit can include reading to the visitee, helping him or her with simple tasks or just chatting. And if there are any issues, the Contact Committee are always on hand to offer support and advice.
