BefriendingBefriending and Telephone Befriending
What does it do?
We can offer opportunities to reduce isolation, develop friendships and feel part of your community.
Our Befriending and Telephone Befriending Co-ordinators can explore areas for support and advice.
They will ask you what you'd like to do to reduce your social isolation and support you to try and find a way to make it happen. We have some wonderful volunteers who support this service by making regular weekly visits and phone calls for older people.
Our supportive service can offer you:
- a weekly visit to sit and chat with one of our volunteer befrienders
- a weekly phone call for a friendly chat with our volunteer telephone befrienders
