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.
