We support people aged 65+ who are experiencing loneliness due to limited social connections.

We operate across Brighton, Hove, Adur and Worthing. Every aspect of our service has been developed in response to the wants and needs of older people. We offer a cohesive range of services which enables older people to choose the option which best suits them.

These services include:

One to one befriending

Group befriending

Telephone Befriending


Intergenerational projects

Seasonal events


Once you make a referral into our service you can be assured that we will contact the individual within a couple of weeks. When we have undertaken an initial telephone assessment, we will update you and provide you with details about any signposting or support we have given the person you have referred if they have declined befriending.  Otherwise, we will update you once we have matched the person being referred with a volunteer befriender.
