Our Befriending Plus Service provides regular contact and support to older people in Buckinghamshire experiencing isolation and loneliness.

How does the Befriending Plus Service work?

The aim of Befriending Plus is to enhance quality of life and alleviate social isolation.
We match trained volunteers to older people who have limited social contact. This regular contact can make a real difference to an older person’s life. We try to pair clients with volunteers who have shared interests and experiences.

At the discretion of the volunteer and if the client is independently mobile, this could then potentially extend to enjoying an activity outside the house together, such as going out for a walk, for a coffee or to the local shop.
