Volunteer befrienders offer social contact to older people in the community . People living alone can become very isolated and begin to lose touch with friends and family for many reasons. Complex health problems, anxiety and depression are just some of the issues facing older communities. That's where you come in! The support and companionship from a volunteer can greatly improve peoples health and emotional well-being! A lot can be learnt from the life experiences of our older populations! Get in touch if you would like to volunteer.
