One-to-one companionship and support for older people


Our befriending service involves matching older people with a volunteer befriender who will visit them at home for about an hour a week, for companionship and support.

Age UK Canterbury monitor the friendship and try to ensure that the older person and befriender have similar interests.

All volunteers are trained, have references and have an enhanced DBS check.

If you would like further information, please contact Tamara, our befriending co-ordinator on 01227 462368 or by email:
