Befriending volunteerOur befriending service provides companionship and support to housebound older people living alone in the community.

Many older people feel socially isolated and lonely and we try to alleviate this by matching the older person with a carefully selected volunteer who agrees to visit regularly, usually once a week for an hour or two.

For more information, contact our Community Befriending and Support team using the details below.

Check visiting service

Our check visiting service provides regular monitoring throughout the year for frail and vulnerable older people. During severe weather conditions we can offer one-off help with shopping, prescription collection and other small tasks.
