Befrienders are volunteers, who spare an hour or two a week to visit a lonely or isolated older person.
Initially, we visit the client to establish his or her needs and interests. We then try to find a suitable befriender who will make regular visits. This is a hugely rewarding experience for our clients AND the befrienders. We currently have over 70 clients benefiting from this service. See what Alan and Raine think about our Befriending service.

“I’ve got a paid job now BUT I still volunteer as I love doing my bit”
WE URGENTLY REQUIRE BEFRIENDERS TO JOIN OUR TEAM. WE HAVE A VERY LONG WAITING LIST WHICH MEANS THERE ARE TOO MANY LONELY CLIENTS. IF YOU HAVE A FEW HOURS TO SPARE PLEASE DO GET IN TOUCH. ALL YOUR EXPENSES ARE PAID AND WE WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
