Help an older Gosport Resident

15/09/2020

Would you like to help reduce loneliness for a Gosport resident in need? Do you enjoy having a chat on a one-to-one basis? If so, you may be interested in becoming a Befriending Volunteer. Opportunities available for Volunteer Telephone Befrienders and, with C-19 guidance, Volunteer Visiting Befrienders as well.

This rewarding opportunity is very flexible and can fit with your own commitments – as little as half an hour a week is all it takes! As a befriender, you can have a direct, positive impact on the life of an older Gosport resident and gain a real sense of community yourself.

“Befriending is very much a two-way thing – being a Befriending Volunteer gives me purpose, I always get a lot out of it.” Betty, Volunteer Visitor.
