Are you facing end of life?
It’s tricky to talk about, but it’s really important that we do. Having the right person there to take time to just sit with you, listen and offer support is so important.
Now, possibly more than ever before, you’re going to need support, without judgement, to process what is happening- in your own time and at your own pace.
You need to feel listened to, respected, and for your wishes to be followed. You’re going to have questions, you’re going to want information and you will need help with making decisions about things.
You may be fortunate enough to have family and friends around to help you work through these things. You may not have anyone. We’re here to support you.

Do you need support?
Getting the right kind of support can make a huge difference to the way you live the last stage of your life. You probably want to be at home but you don’t want to be on your own.
We are here to help talk through your fears, identify what you need and offer you the right support.
Our Emotional Support Services are free of charge. Although there are some restrictions on how we deliver some services there are still lots of ways we can offer you support- by phone, email, webchat and video call. Our job is to help you feel connected and get the support you need.
Do you need company?
If you need ongoing support, our specially trained Compassionate Companions Volunteers are here to keep you connected when you feel most alone.
Compassionate Companions Volunteers will sit with you, be with you and talk if you want to- and if you don’t, they will sit with you quietly.
Do you want someone to sit with you? Listen to music or watch tv with? Perhaps you want to make an album for your family, write letters, tell people how much you love them or make amends? We can support you with that too.
