Our Current Focus
AgeTrust are currently delivering a structured volunteer befriending programme to benefit severely lonely residents of care homes based within local communities.
Befriending is often associated with the elderly and supporting the elderly based within their own homes.
Befriending is done through a combination of telephone and face to face visits which promote users independence and increases their likelihood of them re-entering the community independently or with volunteer support.
