"Pairing volunteer befrienders with isolated older neighbours in the community."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

"After six months I don't go to see Barbara because I'm her 'befriender', I go to see her because she's my friend."

In Doncaster more than 16,000 over 65s live alone

Can you imagine not speaking to another person all week. Somewhere nearby, someone could do with a cup of tea and a chat.

We’re all neighbours. Let’s b:Friend!
