Normal service details...

To tackle the problem of loneliness among older people, QCCC has developed befriending services.

The service works by assigning each older person a befriender, who provides friendly conversation and companionship on a regular basis over a long period of time.

This relationship not only promotes wellbeing and confidence, but can also help people in later life to remain independent in their own homes.

For further information, please get in touch.
