Tower Hamlets "Friend at Home" Befriending Service

Befriending Service for older people in Tower Hamlets

What does it do?

Many older people live alone with little or no social contact which can result in social isolation and lonliness.

Our "Friend at Home" Befriending Service is one way of addressing isolation and loneliness by matching you with a "friend at home" who will come along and visit you at an agreed time. 

You may just want to sit and have a chat, go for a walk or have somebody attend a community or social activity with you.

The support is provided by our trained, male & female, volunteer "Friend at Home" Befrienders all of who have different experience, skills and backgrounds.
