Octavia Kensington and Chelsea Befriending Service
From: £0.00 To: £0.00 from Octavia Foundation
The Octavia Foundation has expanded its befriending service. The Foundation will now be offering a befriending service for isolated adults who live in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
The scheme reaches out to older and vulnerable adults (18 years of age and onwards) by matching individuals to volunteer befrienders who offer a vital link to the wider community through weekly meetings, for a minimum of six months. Volunteers provide emotional support for people whilst promoting independence and reducing isolation.
- Befriending can involve a range of things from having a chat, going for a walk, doing an activity or visiting a place of interest. It depends on what the person would like to do.
- Meetings are organised on a day and time that work for the individual.
- Befriending can improve wellbeing through building a positive and trusting relationship.
All volunteers have been carefully recruited, police checked and trained to ensure a meaningful and high quality service.
