Some families can feel isolated or lonely, due to a new baby or facing some changes or difficulties. Some of these people have trouble getting out to join in with social and community events or feel overwhelmed at home, so can really benefit from a friendly face visiting them and spending time for a chat and a cosy cuppa every so often. These visits can have benefits for both parties with everyone learning a little something from each other.
