Club F.O.D

Club F.O.D aims to prevent Social Isolation within the LGBT+ community in Berkshire, and the Befriending Service aims to reduce Social Isolation where it already exists. We offer two types of service:

Tea-friending - A weekly or fortnightly visit
E-friending – A weekly or fortnightly phone call or through other digital communication tools such as Zoom or Skype

The service is for:

Those who are LGBT+ who are over 50 and are isolated and have Limited Social Connections
Those who are LGBT+ and housebound (no age restrictions) and have Limited Social Connections

During the COVID Pandemic, the E-friending service will be available for anyone over the age of 18 who is feeling isolated would like the chance to hear another human voice at the end of a phone.

Our LGBT+ Befriending Service offers two different types of Befriending Service:

Tea-friending - A weekly or fortnightly visit
E-friending – A weekly or fortnightly phone call or through other digital communication tools such as Zoom or Skype

The service is for:

Those who are LGBT+ who are over 50 and are isolated and have Limited Social Connections
Those who are LGBT+ and housebound (no age restrictions) and have Limited Social Connections

During the COVID Pandemic, the E-friending service will be available for anyone over the age of 18 who is feeling isolated would like the chance to hear another human voice at the end of a phone.

Our volunteers are not Social Workers or Care Workers and do not carry out any tasks normally carried out by a paid professional such as personal care or cleaning. For the E-Friending service they will need a broadband connection to enable use of a VOIP telephone that we will supply.
