We accept referrals for anyone aged 65+ who goes for long periods of time with minimal human contact. Our service is available for older people living in Brighton, Hove and Worthing. Our person centred assessment and review processes enable older people to benefit from one to one long term befriending, be supported to access other services/activities/groups of interest, and/or attend our own diverse range of inter-generational group befriending activities. When making a referral to our service you can be confident that we will update you of our progress.
