Connecting isolated, older people with their local community through visits from a volunteer befriender.
Engage Befriending connects isolated older people (55+) with volunteer befrienders in their local community through regular visits. This could be necessary due to ill health, disability, or other reasons leading to isolation or loneliness. Our service is available to people over the age of 55 living in the Reading Borough. People are able to self-refer and we also accept referrals from family/friends and agencies.
