Community Befriending Volunteering

Can you spare 60 minutes to make a difference to someone’s life.

We are looking for volunteers 18 years and over across North Somerset to visit people 60 years + living in Sandford, Winscombe, Banwell, Langford and Churchill on a weekly basis.

Loneliness can affect all of us at some point in our lives the older we become the higher the risk of becoming lonely and isolated.

On building a companionship with someone 60 years and over, the rewards are endless, with enriching social contact for both. You can choose to spend your visits having a chat, playing cards/board games the choice is yours.

 All our volunteers are DBS checked and given the necessary training.
