Charity information

Radford Visiting Scheme

We are a local, neighbourhood charity based in the Radford and Lenton Sands area of inner-cityNottingham. Our mission is to alleviate the isolation and loneliness amongst vulnerable, older people in the area. We do this by providing people with a volunteer visitor for friendship and support who visit them in their own homes. We also organise shopping trips, outings and social events for our clients to help alleviate feelings of loneliness or isolation.

Our volunteers all come from the local area, many are older people themselves with a significant proportion coming from the BME communities reflecting the diversity of the area as a whole. We offer our volunteers ongoing support, training and supervision in their work with our clients. We also run the Radford Healthy Living 50+ Project which is a health awareness and promotion scheme for people over 50 in the area, the funding for which has come from the Big Lottery Fund which terminates in September 2008.
