Befriending and companionship for older people in Hammersmith and Fulham
We're currently unable to take on any new In Touch Befriending clients
In response to exceptional demand for our companionship befriending service, we have increased our active matches by 300% and are currently overperforming and exceeding our befriending commitment. As a result, we are unable to take on any new befriending clients at this time. We will review exceptional circumstances and help where possible.
Please get in touch in the autumn if you would still like help. In the meantime, the following services might be able to support:
