One to one Befriending is a rewarding relationship between a volunteer (Befriender) and an elderly person (Befriendee) which can involve simple things like having a cup of tea together or taking trips to the shops. Befriending relationships have been proven through our years of experience to reduce loneliness significantly.
These visit’s usually happen within the Befriendee’s own home. Visits usually last for one to two hours. We at Befriend Motherwell will fully train you to be a befriender and are here to support you through Befriending.
