Description of service:
Jigsaw Link runs the following: One to one befriending service – This is available for those who are socially isolated and live alone.

Volunteers can also accompany members to visit places of interest, go out for lunch etc. Older people's Active Living Programme – This includes visits to other community provisions, local places of interest and sessions on dealing with anxiety, relaxation and exercise. Plus feel good workshops with laughter, yoga and compliment sessions. Luncheon club – We run a lunch club every week visiting local pubs and restaurants.
