Assist is a free and confidential service for people over 18 years of age supported by the churches in Cherry Willingham, Fiskerton and Reepham for people in the surrounding areas. We take referrals from healthcare professionals, social care agencies, voluntary organisations, relatives, friends, neighbours or you can contact us yourself. Our volunteers are formally approved, trained, trustworthy and reliable.
Times have changed with public services being cut, people working longer hours and relatives living long distances apart. We have noticed this gap and designed Assist to aid people who are going through a difficulty in their lives and would benefit from one to one support to help them regain their confidence and get back on their feet.
We often don't know what is going on in people lives. They may be suffering through bereavement or trying to tackle depression. ASSIST will also be able to support people who are experiencing other major life challenges –for example, a breakdown in family relationships or recovery following an accident or illness. We can also offer some debt advice services. If we can't help we will do our best to find someone else who can!
Please ring Assist, Monday – Friday 8:45am - 12 noon (answerphone outside of these times) or email us for more information.
