Social Connection

Social connection services

Our Visiting Service  is a befriending service that provides regular visits to older people who would like more company. Our visitors are volunteers who are keen to spend time with an older person for about an hour each week to enjoy conversation and shared interests and activities. Find out more about our social connection services. 

Most local Age Concerns have a visiting service, and all Age Concerns can tell you about social activities and services for older people in your area. Find contact details for your nearest Age Concern.

Why does social connection matter?

Social Connections Matters brings together information, feedback and statistics about the ways our services help people to connect and combat loneliness and social isolation.
