Walking Befriending

What does it do?

Come for a walk with us, at your own pace, near your home. This free service is for older people living in Milton Keynes who have experienced a significant life event, such as bereavement or illness, which has put them at risk of isolation or loneliness.

The Walking Befriending Service provides volunteer befrienders to accompany an older person on a short walk near their home.  By giving encouragement and friendly support, the walking befriender can help people overcome barriers which might be preventing them from being active in later life.
