Currently, our befriending service matches individuals who are isolated, vulnerable or lonely with volunteers who provide social contact and support on a regular basis.
We can offer telephone befriending, face to face/home visiting befriending and event Zoom befriending.
We aim to match the volunteers in relation to the clients’ specific needs. We take the security of both our volunteers and client’s safety seriously, therefore, every volunteer has to undergo a DBS check, and we have a robust Lone Working Policy in place.
If you would like further information about our befriending service please contact us here.
We are always seeking more befrienders to contact lonely or socially isolated older people in the Canterbury district. To apply, please, click here.
