Age Concern Mole Valley

The Age Concern Mole Valley Befriending service is for older people who are lonely and socially isolated. A Volunteer Befriender will visit to provide companionship on a regular basis. The primary role of a Befriender is to provide some company and a listening ear to those who do not have many friends and family nearby.

The service also helps identify further needs and concerns and allows us to offer additional assistance and support via our information & signposting service, which includes working with other organisations and local authorities.

All our volunteers are DBS and reference checked for this service.

Email enquiries for information can be sent to info@ageconcernmolevalley.org.uk

Information for volunteers

Age Concern Mole Valley has been caring for older people in Mole Valley since 1946. We rely on the teams of committed volunteers who kindly give up their time to support our services. Without them we could not deliver the range of activities and services to the community.

There are lots of ways for you to get involved and lots of volunteering activities to suit everyone – regardless of your age, skill or background. As well as helping older people, volunteering can reap many personal rewards. If you answer yes to any of the following, then please contact us:

Do you have 1-2 hours a week to spare?
Do you want to make a difference?
Do you want to gain new skills?
