New Heights Befriending Project

Helping Hands

We are currently developing a befriending service for residents of Kingstanding aged 55 years and over, in particular people who are housebound and with limited access to services. Initially, this will be a telephone befriending service although we hope to develop home visiting as the project grows.  We know that befriending makes a real difference to people who for a variety of reasons have found themselves socially isolated.  The aim of this service is reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.

If you would like to volunteer as a befriender or would like to know more about this service and how to make a referral, please contact Victoria Bixby (Volunteer Coordinator) on 07555 496 614.
