Age Concern Cowplain has a Befriending Service to enable local older persons to access activities in the community. This service is aimed at the older person who has, maybe, lost confidence, be suffering from social isolation, feeling lonely or has anxieties about building up new social networks of friends or interests

Our aims for the Befriending Service is to allow the users, with the help of a volunteer, to access any activity or interest in the wider community that they wish or hope to. The volunteer will accompany the Service User for a six to eight week period, or until the person feels confident to continue to pursue the activity or social interest independently

All volunteer befrienders for these positions are subject to an interview, two references and a Disclosure Barring Service check [DBS]

If you know of anyone in Cowplain, Hampshire, or the surrounding area, or you believe you may benefit from this service, please contact Liz Wood on 023 9226 6423, or e-mail [note change AT to @]
