PIVOT (Pembrokeshire Integrated Voluntary Organisation Team)

  • Limited period of support. One beneficiary requires – six visits for just six weeks
  • Beneficiaries often live alone and have been up to 100 years old
  • Volunteers regularly support 1, 2 or 3 beneficiaries per week taking approximately 1 hour each visit

PIVOT (Pembrokeshire Intermediate Voluntary Organisations Team) is a multi-agency approach operating across Pembrokeshire that provides community support to people who have recently been discharged from hospital, or who may be at risk of unnecessary or inappropriate admission to hospital.

As part of PIVOT, Volunteering Matters recruit and manage local volunteers who provide time-limited support to help with errands and build confidence to enable people to continue living in their own homes when they have no family or friends locally to support them.

As part of a person-centred support plan, our volunteers offer prescription collection, dog walking, shopping, light gardening, light hoovering and home or telephone befriending.
