Befriending Service

If you are feeling lonely or isolated this service offers you a chance to "make a friend".

You may be recovering from an illness and would like someone to visit you at home, or you may be new to the area and would like to meet someone who will give you a helping hand in integrating into the community.

Volunteers can take you shopping, to hospital appointments, shul events or simply have a drink and chat with you at home or outside.

To access this service, please phone BES Cares on 020 8207 5741 or email
