Companions Matter

Companions Matter

Companions Matter is a program that accompanies people as they navigate some of life’s big transitions and challenges. We welcome people who have been in prison or who have been in a hospital or care unit, acknowledging that these are times when the presence of another person who will listen and provide support is vitally important.

Feeling that you are not alone at these times can make a big difference to your health and wellbeing, and can assist you to make positive life choices. Companions Matter connects you to a community of people who care; a place where growth and change are made possible.
