Someone who wants to know how your day was. But who doesn’t mind if you don’t want to talk about it. Who wants to hear about the things that you want to talk about. Or who will kick a ball around or listen to your favourite song (if you don’t want to talk).
A friend who is also a grown-up. An auntie or uncle who isn’t actually related to your parents. A godparent who isn’t ‘godly’ or ‘parental’.
Our Companion Scheme matches children with grown ups (many who also have parents that live apart). Individual arrangements can be agreed to suit each child but Companions can collect from school, go to the park / a cafe, come to your house or chat online.
All Companions are DBS checked and parents can be present (particularly with younger children). References are available.
Prices start from £45/hour and will be agreed depending on individual arrangements (i.e. online/in person, amount of travel, regularity).
