How do I become a Befriender for Age Concern?

Loneliness may well be one of the most important issues that those of us in later life will possibly face with significant issues for physical, mental health and even life expectancy. So what can we do to help now? Befriending is an ideal way to make someone’s life less lonely especially if they live on their own. Each of those visiting someone in their own home will have the opportunity to break that cycle of isolation, build a supportive relationship and provide companionship in difficult times.
