Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees offer befriending services at home and over the phone.

About the Service

We offer a befriending service in Calderdale for any older person who feels lonely or isolated and try to support them to lead a more fullfilling life.

Following a visit by our client liaison team and a discussion about how we can help, a Volunteer Befriender is introduced to provide face-to-face friendship and support in the home.

We are now starting to accept referrals in Kirklees.

Request a Befriender

If you feel lonely or isolated, you can ask about the befriending service yourself or ask someone to contact us on your behalf and a staff member will be in contact.

Please give us a call us on 01422 252 040 or drop us an email at
