Befrienders

Befrienders are here to help people over 50 keep and improve their social lives, and  stay and be happy at home for as long as they are able.

Yet another way of saying the same thing

You may need support because of isolation, loneliness, retirement, bereavement or having recently moved in to the area, or an illness, mental distress, disability.

Befrienders can visit you in your own home, or in the community, to provide friendship and support and explore new opportunities with you.

Befrienders are trained and police checked.
