Become a Home@lone Befriender

Volunteer and support older, isolated people living in the community. Just imagine what a difference you could make by giving an hour or so of your time to chat to someone. No personal care or cleaning would be involved, just companionship. Why not spend your time reading to someone, listening to someone or simply laughing with someone. Available in East Northants, Wellingborough, Kettering and Corby.


Seeking friendly, calm, interesting people to talk to older isolated members of the community. A DBS (criminal record check) will be undertaken plus an informal chat with the co-ordinator and a short training session.
