Befriending Plus

Examples of Practice

Older people are increasingly experiencing social isolation. Statutory services are unable to provide the one-to-one social aspect that a volunteer can provide which is a proven intervention in improving people’s mental health and wellbeing, reducing social isolation and providing associated health benefits of people re-engaging with their community through support.

Contact with a volunteer on a regular basis provides the opportunity for observation of a befriendee’s wellbeing and allows interventions to be explored or offered before the situation deteriorates to crisis level.
