Joining a new group can be daunting for some clients. We have dedicated Coordinators who will support clients on an individual basis to integrate them back into a community based group or activity. The coordinator will organise transport and continue to assist until they are comfortable in attending the group or activity of their choice.
In addition, Bridges can arrange for clients to receive a visit from one of our Friendly Visiting Volunteers. These volunteers visit a client weekly to have a cuppa and a chat, play a game or go for a short walk which provides them with company and a feeling of being connected with the community.
We have a phone-a-friend service for those clients wishing to receive a weekly phone call, also from one of our volunteers.
Please contact the Bridges office on 9763 9700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on how we can assist you.
