We have cautiously restarted this service. Our befrienders are now able to visit clients as long as they follow social-distancing guidelines, stay outdoors and the client is happy to be visited. We continue to provide a telephone befriending service. The number of volunteers we are putting in touch with older people is growing all the time, as the coronavirus pandemic has meant many of us are not able to socialise as normal. Older people who are self-isolating or “shielding” very much appreciate the opportunity for a chat with a friendly, caring person.
Please call us on 01908 550700 if you or someone you know would be interested in this free service.
