Our Friendly Visiting program is about connecting individuals together – whether with a phone call or over a cup of tea. It’s ideal for those that are isolated or may not be able to get out of their home often. West Toronto Support Services will match volunteers with clients based on interests, location and sometimes language. Often, it’s just about two strangers coming together and getting to know one another, providing a connection to the outside world and/or giving an individual a sense of security.
Volunteers are screened carefully and must go through a police reference check. Volunteers in this program will also have an interest in meeting others and developing a friendly relationship. Activities may include conversations, a walk, reading, or playing games.
The program is once again open to new participants. This is a free service.
