Volunteer befrienders wanted to support and befriend older people in the community.

The Volunteers are asked to spend an hour a week with an elderly person in their home just chatting.

It doesn't have to be the same hour or the same day each week, this can be arranged between the Befriender and Client. There are a lot of elderly people out in our community who don't either get out or see anyone for weeks. Just an hour a week would make such a difference and something they could look forward to.


Enthusiasm and friendliness.
