Leicester Western Ward Linking Lives
We are a church led befriending service for all socially isolated and lonely adults, over 60 years old, in the Western Ward of Leicester. We will share the love of God through the gift of friendship.
We aim to reduce loneliness one friendship at a time. Our volunteers are from the local area and all are welcome to volunteer - appropriate checks will be made to maintain safety of both friends and volunteers.

We offer support and friendship to all of our volunteers, we offer training and also carry out safety checks, we carefully match our volunteers to our Link friends (service users) and we monitor and support these friendships as the develop.
We are always looking for volunteers, during Covid-19 pandemic we are communicating with our link friends by telephone, email and letter, this will continue until it is safe to resume 1 to 1 home visits.
