Could you spare some time to brighten up the week of an elderly person or vulnerable adult In the London Borough of Sutton?

There are many people in our community who have found themselves lonely or isolated, whether through ill health, lack of mobility or lack of regular contact with family and friends. 

That’s were Sutton Befrienders comes in.  

We're looking for volunteers who could commit to just one or two hours a week to provide companionship and emotional support to a lonely person. Sometimes the befriending is done over the phone, other times you might be having a cup of tea and a chat in their home, or where possible helping them to get out and about in the community to groups and activities.  

Our Sutton Befrienders team will train and support you to build a meaningful relationship with someone who really needs it
