• KC Contact on Facebook

  • Welcome

    Kilkenny & Carlow Contact has been working in the community since 2003 offering friendship, companionship and one - to - one support to older people living in their own homes.

    A specially trained volunteer is individually matched to each person, and pays regular weekly visits.

    Friendships are forged through shared interests, a chat about the latest current affairs or what's on TV or by walking around the block to a local café.
