Age UK are doing face to face befriending again in Calderdale.
If you want to refer some-one to their Befriending Service please email Julie Taylor from Age UK with the individual’s name, address and contact number.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 07969 576743
All volunteers for the Befriending Service are checked and vetted by Age UK. It can take a few weeks from referral to first contact. Age UK do an Introductory, 20 min session with the individual and the volunteer to ensure they click. Once matched they check periodically to ensure both parties are still happy with the arrangement.
