Through the Community Befriending Programme, befrienders visit seniors in their neighbourhood regularly to keep loneliness and social isolation away. At the same time, befrienders help to act as eyes and ears so that seniors' needs can be better understood and supported.

As a befriender, you will play an important role in supporting seniors to age in place in their community, and providing regular companionship and support for seniors in their golden years. Many befrienders have told us that their volunteerism gives them a sense of purpose. While they may have started out with a simple desire to give back to society, many befrienders also find that through their volunteer work, they develop a special bond with the seniors whom they befriend.
