Summary

Are you a good listener who enjoys a chat and a cup of tea? Would you like to be a Befriender? Our Befriending Volunteers provide regular visits to people.

Detailed description

As we get older, we may struggle to get out and about due to health issues or general frailty.


A regular visitor can really brighten someone’s week and can make a significant impact to health and wellbeing. Could you help?


We match befrienders to clients with shared interests and experiences to ensure you’re both happy in the relationship.


Our Befriending Volunteers provide regular visits, making people feel cared for and connected to the community.
