West Norfolk Befriending
West Norfolk befriending works to decrease isolation among older people in West Norfolk. Many have become isolated due to a change in physical condition or as they have become an unpaid family carer.
Following an assessment at home you will be matched with a vetted, trained and supported volunteer who will visit fortnightly. They will not undertake personal care shopping or advise but will share conversation and stories.
WNB hosts several community groups and social events in the year.
Just call the office if you would like to know more about the service.
