We all know what it's like to feel lonely, but did you know that around 1 million older people regularly go an entire month without speaking to anyone?


Befriending service

Our Befriending Service offers a vital lifeline to many older people who would otherwise feel totally lonely and isolated due to living alone or being housebound.

How does it work?

We match a registered volunteer with an older person to provide friendship and companionship.

Once introduced, the volunteer and older person spend time together on a weekly basis and enjoy a chat and a cup of tea, or maybe a stroll to the local park or shops.

If you wish to have a befriender to visit, please download our referral form or get in touch:
