Visiting Friends befriending service
We are more likely to experience loneliness as we get older as our circumstances change and we don’t have people to call on as much as we used to. Loneliness can have a devastating impact on our lives, but there are many ways we can make sure we stay connected with the people and communities around us as we get older.
If you are experiencing loneliness, or know someone who is, our Visiting Friends befriending service could help.
Who is eligible?
Visiting Friends is a high-quality volunteer home visiting service for:
- People who live alone, in the Walton-on-Thames, Hersham, Woking, or Weybridge areas.
- People over 60, who have little contact with family or friends.
If you are looking for befriending in other areas, we suggest contacting The Silver Line on 0800 4 70 80 90 or Independent Age on 0800 319 6789, both of which offer telephone befriending services.
