‘It’s Only Me’ Befriending Service

 Can You Help?

 We are recruiting Volunteer Befrienders in the Mirfield, Kirkheaton, Lascelles Hall, Almondbury and surrounding areas.

Many of us will know what it’s like to feel lonely from time to time but did you know that  around 1 million older people regularly go entire weeks without speaking to anyone; their only form of company being the television!.  Becoming a befriender and visiting someone who feels lonely for just 1 hour a week can really benefit their well-being and can be extremely rewarding for you as a volunteer J.

Interested? We would love to hear from you.

Please contact the Befriending Team based at Brian Jackson House in Huddersfield on 01484 415465 for more information.

Many thanks

The Befriending Team
