Befriending schemes for the over 60s

Are you over 60 and living in SE1?

Blackfriars Befriending can provide a trained volunteer who will come around have a chat, share a cup of tea and provide help and support.

The befrienders can also help you get out and about and provide information about local groups, services, transport and activities in your area.
