Befriending

Loneliness is a problem among older people.  Age Concern Forest of Dean has a befriending service managed by Anna Grimmett with a team of volunteers. The service works by assigning to each client a volunteer, who will visit  to provide friendly conversation.

If you would like to become a volunteer, or are interested in receiving the service or require more information please email at ageconcern.forestof dean@virgin.net or call 01594 826166 for more information.
