Befriending (for over 65s)

by The Living Well Project Claimed

Befriending is a supported friendship between two people: a trained Volunteer and a Friend (Befriendee). Befriending is offered to alleviate feelings of isolation (social or geographic) and loneliness resulting from a lack of opportunity to meet people for social contact, to make friends, or have someone to talk to for whatever reason.

People can be isolated or feel alone for all sorts of reasons – family living at a distance, experience of bereavements, or frail health restricting lifestyle and activities. Befriending provides safe, reliable, 1-1 friendly social contact which brings companionship, interest and fun and adds social normality to a person’s life.
