The Emotional Wellbeing Support Project provides support to any adult living in Greenwich who is experiencing loneliness, isolation, poor mental health and wellbeing. The work that this project has carried out since it was set up during covid has been a lifeline to many residents and continues to be so as people continue to live through uncertain times.

In addition to befriending telephone calls people are supported and encouraged to get involved in activities and integrate into the community through the help of their wellbeing advisor. 

The project provides walk and talk sessions, coffee and chat meet ups and a range of wellbeing activities. See events page for details

Skilled trained volunteers provide telephone and face to face support to those in need of friendship, reassurance and connection. 

All volunteers are trained to not only offer a friendly ear but also to identify additional services required and to signpost and refer individuals to other organisations. This project provides emotional support and pathways to meet the changing needs of vulnerable residents in Greenwich.

This project is free to use and can be accessed by referring either yourself, a family member or an individual you are working with to this service, please get in contact:
