Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington

A small independant charity which strives to enhance the health and well being of older people by promoting quality assured activity, information and care ensuring older people have the opportunity for choice.

Our befriending scheme teams up volunteers with older people in the community who could use a friend to talk to, help maintain their independence and raise self-confidence.

Volunteer befrienders support their befriendees in a variety of ways such as home visits, telephone calls, taking them to activities or social outings, medical appointments or helping with shopping.
