Make a difference by providing company and conversation to an older person in Croydon.

Our Befriending service supports older adults by alleviating loneliness and isolation, supporting independence, and increasing self-confidence, by making weekly or fortnightly visits to a client living in the borough of Croydon.
What is expected of you:
  • Providing companionship in the client's home, or regular phone calls
  • Giving weekly updates of visits to the Befriending Coordinator
  • Good listening skills 
  • Willingness to adhere to Age UK Croydon's policies and procedures

What you will gain:

  • Training, and regular support and supervision
  • Travel expenses where applicable
  • The opportunity to take part in our Volunteering Programme events
