Our Befriending Service has successfully matched over 200 Volunteers with clients across Somerset and North Somerset who had let us know they were struggling with loneliness. 

We are currently not accepting any new clients or Volunteers into the traditional Befriending service...But we are excited to announce a NEW Active Befriending 'Walk and Talk' project!

Other options

If you are able to get out and about and would like to meet new people in a friendly setting, perhaps you might like to try one of our Ageing Well sessions which are run across Somerset and North Somerset?

Volunteering with us is another way to meet new people, while learning a new skill at the same time as helping your local community
