Volunteer Centre Sutton

Sutton Befrienders and Buddying Service, is a volunteering project which aims to reduce social isolation, loneliness and promote well being for people living in the London Borough of Sutton. We work with adults of all ages who have found themselves lonely or isolated, whether through ill health, lack of mobility or lack of regular contact with family and friends.

We recruit and train volunteer to build meaningful relationships so that the adults they support feel less lonely, less isolated and better connected in their community. We also run several group activities and groups including weekly social walking groups across the borough.
