Do you or someone you know live in the Fylde area and feel isolated or lonely?

Our Befriending Service is for older people who feel isolated, find it difficult to get out and about or just need someone to talk to.

 We can help you reconnect with the local community in a variety of ways, including:

  • Visits from a volunteer befriender
  • Regular phone chats
  • Helping you access local lunch clubs and social groups
  • Helping you to make new friends
  • Providing links to other local services and support

The Befriending scheme is open to anyone aged 65yrs or over and who live in the Fylde Borough Council area. If you are interested in the scheme please contact us yourself or ask someone you know to contact us on your behalf.


The Befriending scheme would not work without our dedicated volunteers. If you have some spare time and would like to make a real difference to the lives of older people we would love to hear from you.

For details call: 0300 303 1234

Service only available in the Fylde area.
