Ottery & District Befriending Service

Befriending Service:

We run a befriending service to help those who are looking for company and companionship.

Our volunteers are happy to visit people in their own homes and have a chat over a cup of tea. It may be that you have problems getting out and about and would just like someone to visit you in the comfort and security of your own home.

If you are interested in this service, a member of Ottery Help Scheme staff will visit you in the first instance for an initial chat and you will then be matched with a volunteer who will visit you on a regular basis.

Donations are welcomed for all of our Befriending services.
