What is this service?

Befriending is a matched friendship between a client and a trained volunteer. It can be whatever you make it and wish it to be. Age Well East will help facilitate either a one to one session, trips out together or conversations over the telephone. You can decide how often you meet and what activities you do.

Their Befriending Service is available to anyone, living in Essex, over the age of 18.

This includes people in later years, carers and those living with:
- Sensory impairments
- Disabilities
- Dementia
- Autism
- Learning Disabilities
- Mental Health Problems
