Covid 19 update. We are currently unable to visit people in their homes due to Covid but we are still offering a telephone buddying service
There are so many people who live alone:
Casual visitors can be rare for many different reasons. Perhaps you know someone who would welcome a friendly face, someone who could visit on a regular basis to share a cup of tea and a chat.
Our team of Volunteers visit anyone who is housebound or isolated within their own home. The role of the Befriender is to offer a one-to-one relationship promoting friendship and company. We now offer a telephone Buddy service for those who prefer a phone call to a visit or for anyone on our waiting list.
BEFRIENDERS can help to relieve loneliness and and social isolation for a member of your community.
Or perhaps you have a couple of hours to spare each week and you would like to volunteer as a Befriender? Please visit our volunteering section
