Newcastle Society for Blind People

Home Visiting

 

Our home visiting service is popular with our service users.  This service provides volunteers for people who are lonely and isolated, offering a friendly chat over a cuppa in their home.  Our home visiting volunteers can also help with such things as, reading your mail or going on a trip or out for lunch or coffee.

These visits are a lifeline to some of our service users who rarely see anyone and miss having company.  If you would like more information on this service then please call Julie McCormack on 0191 232 7292 or email: julie@nsbp.co.uk

"My volunteer visitor is a young lady who is still in school.  We have learned a lot from each other and developed a great friendship.  It has been lovely learning about her culture and interests as well as sharing mine.  I have taught my volunteer how to knit and we spend a lot of our visits laughing."
