Age UK Notts - Befriending Service

Our Visiting Service provides social contact for people who are socially isolated in Nottinghamshire. The service provides a trained volunteer visitor (subject to availability) who will socially engage with older people either in their own home or the wider community.

The service does provide:

  • Support via trained volunteers who can provide companionship, chat and listen, reminisce, make a drink for you or undertake activities (jigsaw, play cards or dominoes, etc) where appropriate
  • Help you to access other services you require, such as housing needs, counselling, lunch clubs or day centres, welfare benefits advice etc.

The service does not provide:

  • Personal Care
  • Tenancy support
  • Domestic help
