Many older people live alone with little or no social contact which can result in social isolation and loneliness.

Befriending Service funded by London Borough of Tower Hamlets and by City Of London.


Our "Friend at Home" Befriending Service is one way of addressing isolation and loneliness by matching you with a "friend at home" who will come along and visit you at an agreed time. 

You may just want to sit and have a chat, go for a walk or have somebody attend a community or social activity with you.

The support is provided by our trained, male & female, volunteer "Friend at Home" Befrienders all of who have different experience, skills and backgrounds. 

If  you are interested in having a "Friend at Home" befriender visit you please telephone us on 020 8981 7124 or email us at

If you are interested in volunteering as a befriender please contact our volunteer manager, Sharon Waddams, on 0208 981 7124
