Befriending

Befriending service for older people in Brent

What does it do?

We understand that getting out and about might not be as easy as it used to be, we can offer friendship and support from our Befriending Service.

Companionship means different things to different people, with some preferring to play games, watch TV or talk. Befrienders usually visit once a week for around an hour. 

Who it is for?

If you are over the age of 75, live alone, or with someone of a similar age, live in Brent, are housebound,or have a significant difficulty in leaving your home and are experiencing a significant degree of social isolation. for example you spend days without seeing anyone, we can provide Befrienders who will visit you in your home once a week to provide companionship.
