NEW 12 month pilot - Community Buddy scheme to support local residents that live in the Castle Ward in Tamworth.
Support Staffordshire will be recruiting and training a team of volunteers to become community buddies to offer a friendly ear to local residents, signposting and supporting accessibility to voluntary, community and health services.
The purpose is to connect community members with community buddies to enable them to attend local groups and to encourage and assist people facing barriers to access support within their local community.
