BEFRIENDING SCHEME

Our core work is our befriending scheme. We recruit and support suitable volunteers who then visit older isolated people on a regular basis.

The befriender provides companionship and may support the person to get out and about, help with a hobby or interest or just have a chat over a cup of tea.

This service is free of charge.
