Befriending Service

The Age UK Teesside Befriending Services provides a range of support to individuals who struggle to access social groups on their own.

The service offers support to those who live alone and have no/little networks, family and friends. We offer opportunities to engage with a trained volunteer who can visit them regularly in their own homes and assist with establishing (or re-establishing) social connections. For those clients who have been isolated for some time it’s really important to promote positive ageing, improve access to services and to assist them in accessing appropriate information.

Our volunteers come from a range of backgrounds, experiences and ages, ensuring a diverse volunteer base as well as an impressive range of skills! We match volunteers to clients based on shared interests etc. and provide a safe and mutually beneficial relationship
