Welcome, we are
The Good Company People

We believe that having Good Company on everyone’s doorstep will help over 60’s enjoy more independent, fulfilling, lives for longer.

 

The Good Company is a new not-for-profit established to do exactly that. We are launching our first service across East Sussex in Crowborough, Heathfield, Forest Row, Mayfield, Rotherfield, Groombridge and Wadhurst to provide Good Company to people who are socially isolated, lack stimulation and some of whom are living with memory loss.

We need you...

Are you compassionate, trustworthy and fun? Could you provide safe and stimulating Good Company to three older adult guests in your own home?

Would you like to be able to earn money whilst knowing that you are making a difference to your community?

We will carefully match guests with you based on needs, shared interests and your hobbies.

Why join the Good Company?

Guests are carefully matched to guarantee enjoyment doing the activities they love in Good Company.

Hosts

Hosts find fulfilment, purpose and connection, whilst also earning a regular income in their local community.

Relatives

Relatives benefit from regular, affordable breaks knowing their loved ones are in Good Company.

Meet Louise

“Over the past year, I have been working towards a work-life balance that allows me to develop my professional ambitions and have more time for my family. 

 

I wanted to be a host for The Good Company People because I love art, working in my woods and gardening. This way I can share my passions with older adults in my community, making a difference to their lives as well as providing for my family”

Join us for a cup of coffee and a chat, every Wednesday, 10:30am on Zoom.

Meet Hazel

“I love going for long walks with friends, sewing, jigsaws, yoga,  playing word games on my iPad, reading and spending time with my grandchildren. I liked the idea of Good Company because I will be matched with people with similar interests as me in a friendly setting”
