Our volunteers visit older people at home on a regular basis for a friendly chat and to see that things are generally well.

A friendly face, calling for a chat

What does the service offer?

Our volunteers get to know their client, providing reassurance as well as companionship to some of the most isolated people in our community.  They are able to help fill in forms and can chat through many of the concerns that you may have.  If you need further support or information they can refer you to our Information & Advice Service.  Our 84 volunteers visit a total of 90 older people on a regular basis, usually every week.

Who is it for?

This service is for people aged over 55 who live in Milton Keynes and would benefit from the support and company a Befriender can offer.  As there is a high demand for this service we prioritise people who do not have relatives or friends living nearby and do not find it easy to leave their home, perhaps due to ill health or disability.

How much does it cost?

We do not make a charge for this service.
