West Cornwall Befrienders

This project provides befrienders to isolated individuals (18+) within their own homes as a way of increasing social interaction, improving mental health and providing company to those who find themselves alone or otherwise isolated.

A volunteer is matched with the individual.  The volunteer will then visit on a regular basis (usually weekly) for social interaction and companionship, which can include visits within the home or occasional trips out.  All volunteers are fully trained.

Our project covers Helston and the Lizard westwards to Lands End and St Ives.
