Forget Me Not Befriending Service

The Forget Me Not befriending service aims to reduce loneliness for people aged 50 or over, by providing a regular telephone call at a time which is convenient to the person. The regular telephone call allows the person to enjoy general conversation on subjects that interest them. The telephone calls are made from Age UK Hull by Telephone Befriending Volunteers. Each Volunteer receives training on telephone befriending and listening skills.

Social Groups

Age UK Hull facilitate regular social groups at the Healthy Living Centre and at convenient locations throughout the city of Hull. The groups allow people aged 50 or over to meet and make lasting friendships and also allow people to gain confidence. Occasionally groups from different locations within the city can meet together and enjoy a meal in a local restaurant. At times it may also be possible for groups to enjoy a day out. This may be a trip to the sea side or to another attraction.
