Friends For Needs (FFN) Ltd started as a partnership in 2011 and now have companionship services in March, Wisbech, Chatteris, Ramsey, Whittlesey and Wisbech.

Over the past 12 months, a number of people in the community have benefited from their services, resulting in FFN expanding their client base and companions. They now plan to extend their services by providing practical training to assist those that are deaf and suffering with dementia.

Councillor Jan French recently visited the base to commend FFN for their hardwork.

FFN help those who may not have a family, friends or neighbours to help with their everyday chores.

Their services include household chores, assistance during recuperation, meal preparation, laundry, light gardening, board games, shopping trips, dog walking and appointments.
