Are you living with a chronic, long-term or terminal illness, or over the age of 80?

Do you feel lonely or isolated from your community?

Mountbatten Neighbours is a free, community-led project which could give you some extra support, to do the things you like doing and stay connected with the people around you.

Mountbatten Neighbours are a group of trained people who offer their time, companionship and support to people living near them who have serious illnesses, or who are older. 

How can a Mountbatten Neighbour help me?

They can

  • visit you for a cup of tea and a chat
  • go with you for a walk in the park
  • offer you friendship and emotional support
  • explain services provided by Mountbatten, which can help you live well with your illness
  • support you to make a plan for your future care, to make sure that your wishes and preferences are known and taken into account

If you would be interested in having the support of a Mountbatten Neighbour, fully trained and supported by Mountbatten, you can contact us for further information by email or phone (01983) 217368.

Could you be a Mountbatten Neighbour?
