Time and Talents logoAn hour a week can change a life.

Befriending is a major service that we provide with the support of our volunteers.  We are always looking for volunteers who have an hour a week to spare to visit an isolated older person in their home.

The visits can simply be as simple as having a chat over a cup of tea or playing a game of cards.  So many Befrienders comment on how rewarding they find their visits because they have made a new friend, feel appreciated and are learning someone else’s life story.

Befriending helps reduces loneliness, improves wellbeing and connects people to their community, just from one hour a week

What our befrienders say –
“The befriending relationship has made such a difference to both our lives”
“Once a week, Dave and me go for pie and mash. It’s a good to have a natter, and we have whale of a time. ”
“It’s like I’ve gained a grandparent!”
