COVID-19 (Corona Virus) has changed the way we go about our every day lives and sadly our elders are some of the worst affected. All of the Time To Talk Befriending members are having to self isolate for at list 12 weeks for their own safety. Almost all of them have underlying health issues so it's critically important e look after them and help keep them safe over the coming months. We are working harder than ever to help them and with your kind support, we can continue doing all we can.

Here is how you can help support older people in Brighton, Hove, Adur and Worthing:

Donations make a huge difference enabling the continued support of sustainable loneliness solutions within the wider community. For as little as £2.50 meaningful engagement can be undertaken connecting those most in need.
Visit the donation page to see how your kind and generous donation counts towards increasing friendship and tackling loneliness. 


Evidence shows that volunteers are just as likely to positively benefit from befriending as those they connect with. Committing a small amount of your time to enhance the well being of others is rewarding for all involved and forms an important part of tackling loneliness.
