Befriend West Berkshire has now launched!

Having regular interactions with other people can help to combat loneliness and improve quality of life, physical health and mental well-being. Volunteer Centre West Berkshire is pleased to have started a new project Befriend West Berkshire   which recruits and trains volunteers to become befrienders to socially isolated people over the age of 50.

Please read the leaflet to find out more about the project. If you think that you might wish to become involved or would like some further information, please email or call 01635 49004.
