How do our Move Mates find us?
We work with referrers to make sure the people who would benefit from our Move Mates service are put in contact with us. Sometimes someone will approach us who we don’t have the resources to help, in that case we refer them to other services and charities like Age UK York and vice versa. It really is a two-way relationship.
We spoke to one of our referrers, Penny, to find out more about the referral process and what it means to the people we help.
The referral process is easy, we have a form on our website and a friendly team who are ready to answer any questions you might have.
“The concept is easy; the concept of a Move Mate is really easy to explain to people.” – Penny
Move Mates helps our beneficiaries gain confidence, improve their physical health and boost their mental wellbeing and our referrers play a huge part in that.
“I was talking to a chap yesterday who has been involved in Move Mates for about three months. He said it has really boosted his confidence immensely”
