Linda’s Story

Linda was referred to Together Co during lockdown by her GP, after struggling with feelings of isolation. We matched her with a phone befriender who called each week, as well as a link worker from our social prescribing service, who provided Linda with crucial contacts and services that would help her feel more positive and see her through the challenges brought about by the pandemic. Linda no longer needs Together Co’s assistance, but she glows about how we helped her in her time of need.

Together Co were an absolute godsend for me. I was really struggling – particularly right at the start of lockdown when you couldn’t really go outside or see anyone. But I was put in touch with a lovely gentleman, and my link worker Jenny who were just wonderful to have around in such a challenging time – and with no judgement.

I was amazed at how quickly everything happened. Within only a few days of being referred I had a phone call, and Jenny put me in touch with several services that really helped me solve a lot of my problems in how I was feeling. I was so impressed by how resourceful and well-connected the team are.

I’m extremely grateful for the service, and the kindness and the support I received from Together Co.
