Someone to talk to when you need them most


Our befriending service is open to any over 60’s who may feel isolated or lonely or do not see anyone on a regular basis due to health or mobility issues. Our team of over 150 befriending volunteers are matched with older people in their area and will visit their befriendee once a week to have a chat, maybe a cup of tea or two and get to know each other.*

This service is also offered as a telephone service. Both options are completely free of charge.

To refer yourself or someone you know (please make sure you have their permission before referring someone else), please contact Julia on 01702 345373 or send an email to

* Please note during the current covid-19 restrictions we are offering the telephone befriending service only at the present time.
