Volunteer Befrienders Needed

Could you spare a couple of hours a week to help reduce social isolation?

We are looking for volunteer befrienders to help people with early-moderate stage dementia to continue to live well.

We match befrienders with people who have similar interests. Befrienders will encourage their befriendee to pursue loved hobbies or simply provide companionship. Activities might include: visiting a garden centre, having a walk, watching a football match or even just having a coffee and chat in the person’s home for two hours per week (PVG registration, full training, ongoing support and expenses paid).

If you are interested, please contact the Befriending Co-ordinator at Town Break on (01786) 476797 or email
