We are Community Solutions, an innovative social enterprise, specialising in engagement and support. We empower local people to meet local needs, promoting interdependence, confidence and self-esteem. We believe that everyone deserves to be happy, healthy and the best them that they can be.

We offer various forms of mentoring and befriending through home visits, telephone support and group activities. The informal support given via volunteer befrienders helps improve the health, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of people who experience health and wellbeing problems.  Our aim is to alleviate social isolation and loneliness, for all ages. Our home visiting support helps those who are housebound through age, ill-health or disability and our telephone support service keeps people in touch with others on a weekly basis.

We operate a social prescribing model of bringing people together to enjoy common interests and to increase a person’s health and wellbeing. Instead of needing to see your GP for social reasons, why not come along to our groups to help you feel less isolated, in touch with friends and to enjoying doing the things that make you happy.
