What is Powys Befriending Service?

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.

Befrienders are trained and police checked before visiting people in their own homes or in the community.

Yet another way of saying the same thing

Befrienders provide

  • companionship and support 
  • help promote personal choice and increase self respect
  • support existing skills
  • help explore new opportunities
