Individual Programs

Bridges Individual Programs can offer you a wide-ranging variety of services tailored to your needs.

Assisted Shopping

Bridges Assisted Shopping Program can help you if you are struggling to do your shopping on your own.  Our volunteers are patient and friendly and make essential shopping possible for you by picking you up from your own home, taking you to your local shops (which may include, the post office, bank and supermarket for example) and then taking you back home.


Phone-a-friend  gives you the chance to have regular contact with a familiar voice if you are feeling alone, lonely, or isolated. You can stay connected and be supported by receiving a free phone call on a regular basis from one of our friendly volunteers. Our Volunteers are great listeners who also have the ability to talk about a wide range of subjects.

Good Company (Home Visiting program)

(Starting 01/09/24)

One of our friendly volunteers will pop in for a visit at your home where you can enjoy a chat with them over a cup of tea or coffee. Our volunteers are excellent conversationalists and are happy to chat about a variety of topics. Not only do our volunteers enjoy the company of people they are animal lovers too. If you own a dog, they may suggest taking your furry friend for a walk so Fido doesn’t feel left out! If you love dogs (but don’t own one), our volunteer may even be able to bring their dog to visit you *conditions apply.
