Befriending is for people aged 65 and over.

Our trained and vetted volunteer Befrienders offer

  • One to one home visits - time for a chat and perhaps a cup of tea whilst playing scrabble or doing something else together. Arrange a weekly meet up at a time suitable for you
  • Telephone befriending – get a telephone companion by receiving regular calls from a Bromley Well Befriender
  • Get out and about – a Bromley Well volunteer companion will encourage and motivate you to get back into the community by accompanying you on walks and light shopping until you feel confident to do it alone
  • Join in at our regular Community Hubs – socialise, make friends and take part in fun activities
  • Get moving at our monthly walking group – an opportunity to socialise, make friends and get out in the community. First Tuesday of every month in Beckenham
  • Bi monthly exercise class: A seated/ standing class to help you improve all areas of physical fitness and improve mental health and wellbeing.
