Welcome to Happy at Home
Happy at Home supports the elderly and lonely in South Tyneside.
Our volunteers make regular visits (usually weekly) to lonely isolated people; having a chat, listening to music, sharing a past time or just reminiscing.
For those who can get out and about, we run our Happy Hubs throughout South Tyneside where people who are lonely can make new friends.
We also run at least two additional events per year (at Christmas and in the summer) to which befrienders and the people that they visit are invited.
Would you like to visit and befriend a lonely older person in your neighbourhood?
We are looking for people who have time to pop in and have chat with a lonely person and, where possible occasionally accompany them to a social event.
Could you spare some time helping out at one of our Happy Hubs? Or maybe you’d like to help behind the scenes?
We are always looking for volunteers.
