About My Area – Communicare boosts community of Banister Park

Communicare has had a huge month as far as publicity is concerned. As well as featuring several times in the Daily Echo and in the Scene Magazine, we’re now on the ‘About My Area’ website.

Manager Annie said, “We know people worry about giving up their time and may feel this is a huge commitment. We appreciate everyone is busy, but we find even the busiest person has a few minutes each day to make a phone call or to drop in and see a neighbour when they are passing.”

Communiteer, Carole Dobson, who’s been in hospital previously for hip/knee operations really understands why it is important to have a good network of people around to help. She said: “I am a communiteer because I know what it is like to need a helping hand when you come out of hospital. It’s so important to see a friendly face for a chat and a cuppa, and just to know someone cares. It’s wonderful to have that support when you really need it.”

We’re looking for businesses, groups and individuals in the Banister area that would like to get involved in some way, even if they have just 30 minutes every now and then to spare. Call us on 023 8021 6016 or email: enquiry@communicareinsouthampton.org.uk
