Face to Face or Telephone Befriending/Companionship Calls for the over 55s across Mendip
Can you spare an hour a week to brighten up someone’s day? If the answer is “Yes” then we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for more wonderful friendly volunteers to facilitate our expanding service to befriend older people on a one to one basis across Mendip.
Our Volunteer Face to Face or Telephone Befrienders help improve the quality of life for older people across Mendip who are socially isolated and may feel lonely. Our befrienders are introduced to one of our members with the purpose of meeting or calling them to have fun and friendly chit chat for up to an hour to help the person feel less isolated. Keeping connected is particularly important at this time.
The aim of our befriending service is to reduce isolation and loneliness, provide a platform for our members to feel part of a nurturing community and support network. Most of all, to provide our members with something to look forward to.
If this sounds like you and you like sound of helping out, please get in touch to find out more about becoming part of our wonderful team.
