Is your client lonely and ever in need of just a chat?

Whether your client would prefer to have a chat with someone in their own home or over the telephone, our Befriending Service can suit all.

Due to COVID-19 this service may look a little different. Our home visits are now either over the telephone, via Zoom or as by government guidelines, as garden visits.

  • Visiting Scheme

    Our volunteers provide friendship and a listening ear if your client is feeling isolated in later life. A carefully matched volunteer will visit them regulary in their own home (COVID-19 dependent) to share news, views and interests. 

  • Telephone Club

    Our Telephone Club provides friendship and support over the phone. Your client can enjoy a regular friendly chat with one of our brilliant Telephone Befrienders.
