Active & In Touch

"Our PURPOSE is to help combat isolation and loneliness of adults in Frome and surrounding villages."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Feelings of isolation and loneliness can be difficult to deal with. Sometimes we justneed someone to help us meet other people and to re-connect with the community around us.

 Need a little company? Wanting to try something new? Nervous of going somewhere on your own?

Active and In Touch Frome is a charity that reaches out to peoplewho are isolated and alone and invites them to become an Active and In Touch member and receive support, befriending and practical help.  You may wish to join our scheme because you have become isolated following a bereavement or a change in your health or personal circumstances.  Perhaps you are new to the area and yet to make friends.

We currently take referrals from Frome and the surrounding villages.

What We Do

Our AIM is to provide support and friendship to adults who feel lonely or isolated through: 

-          1:1 befriending (with matched volunteers in members own homes or a place of their choosing

-          A meet-up group for those that require a small group environment

-          A social inclusion group full of joyful activity for adults of all ages

-          Host special events such as outings, working an allotment, a walking group, a Christmas lunch 

-          Support individuals to be more active through collaboration with other organisations

We will do this by being supportive friends and working with others, by communicating (newsletters, emails, Facebook, Twitter, flyers, newspapers) and recruitment (of staff, of volunteers, of members).
