Services offered: The befriending service aims to match older people who may be lonely and isolated to a befriending volunteer. Befrienders are able to offer support and friendship. The service can be accessed directly by an older person. When a volunteer is found, a meeting is arranged where both parties can meet, accompanied by the Befriending Co-ordinator. Finding a new friend through Age Concern, who will visit once or twice a week breaks the monotony of isolation and is something that is looked forward to by 300 older people that have found a friend via this service.
