What will this do?
By choosing to support Engage Befriending in this way, you will be helping to finance the provision of volunteer befrienders who visit older isolated people in the local community. Many of the people Engage Befriending visit experience loneliness on a regular basis but say that having even one visit a week makes a significant difference to how they feel about themselves.
Mary told us , ‘I really look forward to Pauline’s visits as she really cheers me up. Before she came I couldn’t go out but now she takes me places and I get to do things again.’
Engage Befriending are excited to have been chosen as a Coop local community cause and your support through this scheme really will make a significant difference. Thank you.
