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.

  • 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.
