No-Fee Programs
The following programs are provided to you free of fees. Volunteers play a key role in providing the programs.
Craft Group
Volunteers meet weekly between September and June to make crafts for the various fundraising activities of Scarborough Support Services.

All of the crafts made in this group are easy to make, and beautiful to look at. Volunteers make a variety of crafts, and there is always someone on hand to help if you aren't sure of the next step.

This group is a great way to meet new friends. Spend a morning learning how to make fun new crafts, and support the other important programs Scarborough Support Services offers at the same time!

Call us at 416-750-9885 or email the program co-ordinator at to find out more about our Craft Group and when it meets next.

Note: While there are no fees for participating in this program, there may be some minor costs associated with purchasing of materials.

  Friendly Visiting
This program is a great way to find some companionship. Trained volunteers are matched with seniors and disabled adults who are socially isolated. Volunteers provide a personal, continuous one-to-one relationship with clients at their residence and may perform tasks such as reading and writing.

Call us at 416-750-9885 or email the program co-ordinator at for more information

  Telephone Reassurance
With this program, trained volunteers call and befriend isolated seniors and disabled adults on a regular basis to ensure their safety and well-being.

You can feel secure knowing that a few times a week, you can hear that friendly and familiar voice on the other end of the line.

Call us at 416-750-9885 for more information about the Telephone Reassurance program.
