BeFriend is here to support isolated people who are over 55 and live in Berwickshire or Kelso.
Our volunteers visit people who are lonely and isolated, offering companionship, a chat, a chance to go out for a coffee, or even a walk round the park. The people we visit really feel the benefit, both in their physical and mental wellbeing.
As well as one-to-one befriending, we also offer the chance to attend our get-togethers, where people can enjoy a chat and a brew – cake included!
We also organise occasional activities including things like crafts, small concerts, quizzes, and boccia.
