West Werks, 41-43 Portland Road,
At Time to Talk Befriending we believe our elders should be honoured and respected – not forgotten. Yet there are literally thousands of older people living in our local neighbourhoods who feel invisible and alone. It is therefore time for change!
Maintaining friendships and remaining active are two key factors to improving wellbeing in later life. We therefore cannot advocate befriending enough! Not only do strong friendships develop bridging the gap between generations, but some older people said they felt worthless and didn’t want to live anymore until they were matched with a volunteer for much needed companionship and ‘time to talk’.
