Could You be a Friend?
Doing the small things that make a big difference
Many older people in Dorset can have their lives changed through contact with befriending schemes. Loneliness and isolation are common among older people living alone.
Volunteers provide a range of services to people who require additional support to remain independent and active in their community. Anyone can become a volunteer and make an incredible difference to someone else’s life. Even an hour a week will make a difference.
