Powys Befriending Service helps improve the independence of people over 50 by helping maintain social networks and remain in their own homes for as long as they are able.
Befriending volunteers are trained and police checked before visiting people in their own homes or in the community.
Call 01597 822 191 for an informal chat or email pbs(at)pavo.org.uk
During the pandemic period we were inundated with volunteers to support telephone, online and letter writing befriending.
Weekly contact could make the difference to help you overcome loneliness and isolation whilst having a good chat, and if you need help getting online or would like to improve your digital skills one of our volunteers can help.
If you would like to receive a weekly phone call, a letter in the post or join in an online meeting and are over 50 please call 01597 822 191 or email pbs(at)pavo.org.uk
All of our current events for everyone to connect and get together can be viewed in our events calendars below.
