Befriending

London can be a lonely place, particularly for older members of our communities. If you or anyone you know is lonely or isolated we introduce you to a volunteer befriender who shares your hobbies and interests. They can arrange to spend time with you for an hour a week, at home or somewhere else if you prefer. This service is available in Westminster for over 55s and in Kensington and Chelsea for isolated adults aged 18 and up.

This service is delivered through our Outreach team and the Octavia Foundation. If you would like to apply for our befriending service contact us now and we can put you in touch with our Outreach team. If befriending is not quite what you are after they can connect you with lots of other local activities and support.

If you would like to be a volunteer and befriend someone then please call us on 020 8354 5500 and ask us about volunteering opportunities.
