Befriending Volunteers

Age Concern Cowplain has a befriending service to support people in the local community who have become isolated or have lost confidence in accessing activities in the community.


This is a 6 to 8 week project and takes just a couple of hours a week for a volunteer befriender to assist an older person to feel and become a valuable member of the community again.
