Community Links Befriending Project
The Community Links project will address social isolation, exclusion and loneliness particularly in people aged 65 years and over. The overall aim is to enhance quality of life and improve emotional health and wellbeing.
The project will provide a befriending service that will be tailored to individual needs. Through volunteer befrienders older people will benefit from companionship, human support and contact, and if they choose to do so, from re-engaging in the lives of their communities.
We have an open referral system, people can refer themselves, or be referred by family, friends, neighbours, GP’s or Social Services.
If you would like further information or if you feel that you could benefit from either project please contact:
