Happy at Home South Tyneside is a voluntary organisation and part of the Churches Together in South Tyneside charity. We never charge for our services and are not associated with any other organisation that uses the style “Happy at Home”

We are once again making home visits, although we do have a waiting list, and persons referred must meet certain criteria (see Guidance Notes).

We are also providing a telephone support service to maximise coverage, however, it is unlikely we will be able to re-open our Happy Hubs until later in the year.

There has been a dramatic rise in the number of COVID vaccine scams going around and we have been asked by the Local Authority and the NHS to pass on information about vaccine scams.

Welcome to Happy at Home

Happy at Home supports the elderly and lonely in South Tyneside.

Under normal circumstances our volunteers make regular visits (usually weekly) to lonely isolated people; having a chat, listening to music, sharing a past time or just reminiscing.

When not in lockdown,  we also run our Happy Hubs throughout South Tyneside where people who are lonely can make new friends.

Again, when not locked down, we also run at least two additional events per year (at Christmas and in the summer) to which volunteers and the people that they visit are invited.

Would you like to befriend a lonely older person in your neighbourhood?

We are looking for people who have time to call and have chat with a lonely person in South Tyneside.

We are always looking for volunteers.

Churches Together are hiring…

An opportunity to lead an energetic dedicated team in the charity sector in South Tyneside…

We enjoy a good hour together, chewing the fat, – the time flies by when she is here and I really look forward to her visits.

Apart from a shopping service once a week, Mary is the only person I see from one week to the next, she has become my link with the outside world.

Nicholla is a real friend – she has become part of my family.
