Resident Support Services
As a NHG resident you can benefit from our partnerships with local support agencies who can help you with many areas of your life from money and jobs to health and wellbeing.
Select a borough location and the type of service that you need in the filter boxes on the left. Then select a service from the list.
To apply, you can send your details to the partner who will then contact you to arrange the next steps.
If you would like to receive updates about our partner employment, training and project opportunities, please join our mailing list.
Re-engage are a nationwide charity on a mission to combat loneliness amongst older people through free volunteer-led social activity groups and call companions, a free telephone befriending service.
Residents aged over 75 years of age will be matched with trained and vetted volunteers, and those residents looking for volunteering opportunities will be trained and supported to become call companions.
These volunteers – known as call companions – will provide life changing social connections and companionship through regular telephone conversations. Re-engage also offer the rainbow companions service for LGBT+ users over 75 who’d like to speak to someone who is also LGBT+.
Residents over the age of 75 can refer themselves to the programme or ask their housing officer for a referral if they feel they need it.
Residents over the age of 18 can also get involved by registering to become a volunteer where you will receive in depth training and on-going support.
