"The best things about befriending is the joy and thanks form the person you visited, knowing you have made a difference to their day"
"The need for human contact and a contact that is interested in me makes the biggest difference in my life."
To me, Befriending (by phone) means giving someone a virtual hug to let them know that I am there for them and which I hope brightens up their day.
"Always good to get your own life into perspective and be thankful for what you've got. Enriches the general tapestry of life."
"The good feelings I get from doing something good. Know my scheme member needs my company as she does not see anyone else, that fulfils me."
"Hearing about her (befriender) social life helps me feels like I'm in the world."
Your donations and support helps to change lives and overcome loneliness
Could you support us financially? In doing so you will enable us to positively connect with older people who feel ‘invisible’, ‘forgotten’, and ‘alone’.
Regular monthly or one off donations make a significant difference to our Charity.
We need the generous support of our community, both big and small to improve the lives of society's most lonely, isolated and vulnerable older people.
