Age UK Befriending Service

A free befriending service for over 70s to enhance quality of life by alleviating loneliness and isolation

Telephone befriending: our telephone service provides regular telephone calls for a friendly chat with one of our volunteers.
Carers telephone befriending: A matched volunteer will phone the carer on a weekly or fortnightly basis to have a chat.
Face to face befriending: our volunteers offer friendship if you are feeling isolated in your own home. Your volunteer can visit regularly to chat, play games, birdwatch, reminisce, watch TV; anything of mutual interest!
Penpal letter: A matched volunteer will send and receive a letter once a month.

Referrals can be made by individuals, family, friends, neighbours and professionals. We support people aged 70+ who have limited social contact with family and/or friends. Priority is given to those people who have no one.
