Give the Gift of Friendship

Almost a quarter of older people said they will be forced to choose between heating their home or putting food on their table. That's why we are bringing our older people together to share a hot meal and friendship. You can help, by donating today.

At Volunteer Now we believe connections count and having that friend can truly make a difference.

We know from experience bringing older people together to connect, listen, laugh and share can have a huge positive impact on their well-being.

Having a befriender is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It saved me from hell, thats the truth. Jeanette

For 25 years we have been providing a befriending service to older people who in particular can experience loneliness with one in three older people saying they have felt lonely. This can have a huge impact on their health and wellbeing.

A gift this winter could support older people to come together and enjoy each others company

From providing social opportunities to offering dedicated shopping and driving support to older people; every donation made this winter has the ability to change an older persons life.

Its nice to see the difference you can make to an older persons life in just a few hours Karen, Befriender
