Friendship & A Listening Ear

  • Coping with the loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things that we ever have to deal with. We are all different, and no two people will experience bereavement in the same way

  • Feelings of loneliness can be one of the most difficult aspects to cope with, but talking about your feelings with someone who isn’t emotionally involved can help

  • As part of Age UK BRWF’s Befriending Service, we offer friendship and support to those that are experiencing loss

  • Our volunteers are not counsellors, but they can provide a listening ear, through visits or by phone, offering kind words and support. When ready, they can also help people with staying ‘socially connected’ by accompanying them to activities they enjoyed before they were bereaved or with trying something new

  • This is a free service and all of our volunteers are DBS (criminal records) checked and have been carefully selected and trained for the role

This service is a joint initiative in partnership with Age UK Worcester & District and Age UK Malvern & District. We are also working with other groups and local hospices, that may offer counselling and support (including St Richard’s, Primrose and KEMP hospices).
