Telephone befriending

Our befriending service


Our befriending service is changing and we are not taking referrals at present.  Please watch this space for updates.

Our befriending service offers companionship to isolated seniors in Waltham Forest and provides someone to chat to on a regular basis.


We offer telephone befriending to anyone over the age of 50 in Waltham Forest who is living alone and feeling isolated.  If you would like to refer someone or even yourself, please complete our referral form, click here to download the form.


Once we have reviewed the referral, we will allocate one of our friendly volunteers to call the referee on a weekly basis.


Our volunteers

Are local residents who volunteer their time on a weekly basis to help other local residents.

They are friendly local people who want to give something back to their community and we are hugely grateful for their support.


Would you like to volunteer?

If you would like to volunteer, we would love to have a chat with you.
