Age UK – Together Befriending Service
Working across Somerset the Together Befriending Service provides a valuable social link for older people who may be lonely or isolated, particularly in rural areas. Our large team of together volunteers are available for one-to-one support, regular visits or telephone calls as well as for links into services, community groups and activities. Volunteers visit people, perhaps for an hour each week, in their own home to chat, reminisce maybe and enjoy a cup of tea in a relaxed environment. You may wish to note that this is an extremely popular service, and there may be waiting lists in some areas.
