What is befriending?
Our Befriending volunteers help to combat loneliness and isolation by making regular visits to older people in their homes, providing companionship and a listening ear.
Who is the service for?
This service is open to residents of Kensington & Chelsea who are aged 55 and over. If you find it difficult to get out and about, and are on your own for long periods of time, a volunteer befriender could be right for you.
