Royal Trinity Hospice Compassionate Neighbours programme is on the lookout for new volunteers.

It is particularly interested in finding people living in Southfields, Fulham and Battersea to join the social movement tackling social isolation experienced at end of life.

Volunteering as a Compassionate Neighbour helps people with a long-term illness or social isolation reconnect with their community, leading to fuller, happier lives.

The charity says that if you can spare an hour each week to talk to someone who is lonely you will be making a real difference in their life, and your own.

The next training and information session takes place on Tuesday 17 October. You will need to attend three sessions which are a mix of online and in-person at the charity’s base near Clapham Common.

More information can be found by visiting this link.

Applicants will undergo a short interview and DBS checks.

Royal Trinity Hospice cares for around 2,500 people a year in its inpatient unit on Clapham Common and across the community in patients' homes, supporting them and those they love with a range of specialist support services, all provided for free.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
