The No.1 Befriending Agency is a vibrant local social enterprise that works to reduce loneliness and isolation. We endeavour to ensure that older people can thrive in later life. We work with our dedicated volunteers to provide the support that local older people need to live happy, healthy lives. We work to help older people stay connected with their communities, alleviating loneliness, improving health and wellbeing and making communities stronger through volunteering.
