Befriending Service

What does it do?

Our befrienders are following government rules during the pandemic so they are now able to meet up indoors subject to certain conditions.  We continue to provide a telephone befriending service.  The number of volunteers we are putting in touch with older people is growing all the time, as the coronavirus pandemic has meant many of us are not able to socialise as normal.  Older people who are vulnerable or nervous of socialising very much appreciate the opportunity for a chat with a friendly, caring person.
