Pet Buddy Befriender

Volunteering you can do with your dog! Pet Connect is our exciting new project aimed at reducing loneliness and social isolation in Tameside. We need volunteers who have a dog to get involved, visiting people in their own homes on a regular basis.

What you would be doing:

  • Taking your dog to visit a person who may be experiencing loneliness or social isolation.
  • Chatting, having a brew, and developing a positive, therapeutic connection with the individual.
  • Potentially going for short dog walks with the individual.
  • Encouraging them to attend our animal-themed community cafe space, and potentially accompanying them there.
