We have 9 dedicated volunteers working in our local area providing regular outreach and contact within the scheme.
Our ‘Befrienders’ scheme offers company and friendship to those over 70 in the local area who desire contact and support. Volunteers visit people at their homes and there are occasional Befrienders events in the community space
“At the age of 91 one starts to think about things differently. People need help. I was awoken to this idea of setting this up, to respond to those needs.”
Ronnie Fuller has established the Befrienders scheme to reduce the isolation of older people
