About Active and In Touch

Chatting, laughing or sharing your time with someone, makes a world of difference. Someone near you sits alone day after day, cut off from life in the community because they have lost the confidence or companionship they need to lead a full and active life.  

Unfortunately it is all too easy for people to find themselves with no one to turn to. Think how you’d feel if you’d lost touch with neighbours and friends. Ill health, old age or bereavement are some of the reasons why people become isolated.

Our volunteers visit,  help and befriend people who have become isolated or out of touch with the community around them.

"We are meeting lots of people who have become isolated through the circumstances life has thrown at them, maybe caring for a partner for years, moving to a new area, or just not feeling confident to try new things alone. We currently take referrals from Frome and the surrounding villages.”  Lucia Chadwick, Volunteer Coordinator

By holding a Dinner4Good (this might be a dinner party event, a BBQ or a picnic) for us you'll be helping to raise much needed funds to support our vital work. Every little helps - for example, £10 hires a community room for a morning or afternoon social group session, £40 covers the costs of recruiting, training and supporting someone to become a volunteer befriender, £140 provides the funds we need to support a neighbour in need with a befriender for 6 months.  To reach everybody in Frome that could benefit from our help we need to raise £12,000 a year.

Active and In Touch is run by ViSTA, a registered charity no 1119172.  www.vistaproject.org.uk

Thank you, in advance, for your help - it's greatly valued.
