Loneliness

Sometimes, a friendly chat can make the world of difference for your wellbeing.

Our National Befriending Service connects you with a volunteer who will telephone regularly and can also help you find support with practical and wellbeing issues. 

Simply contact wellbeingmatters@placesforpeople.co.uk or text ‘befriending’ to 07443 190008, and a member of our team will be in touch. Alternatively, we’ve put together a range of other resources you can explore.
