New Connections Befriending Scheme aims to provide company and support to isolated people in their own homes. A volunteer befriender can visit a person each week for one or two hours. A Telephone Befriending service is also available, where a person can receive a regular, weekly telephone call. These services can provide older people with an opportunity to chat and reminisce, which can be beneficial to their sense of identity and well-being.
Please contact the service provider for details of any costs.
