Depending on preference and availability
A befriender is a volunteer who can come to see you regularly at home for a chat and a cup of tea, with whom you develop a friendship overtime. This can make a real impact on those who live on their own and would like to have someone visiting them for conversation. Visits can be as often as once a week, for an hour or two. Befriender service are meant for people who are housebound or have mobility issues. Matches ensure languages and cultural needs are met. You and the volunteer decide visit frequency and day and time of the week.
If you are interested in meeting a befriender or volunteer to become one, you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on the number above.
