Please support our Blaby befrienders
Many of our elderly residents are often lonely and isolated from their communities, which is why we support befriending services that provide friendship and support to people in their own homes through volunteer befriending relationships consisting of weekly visits and other activities.
Community Action Partnership (Leicestershire) is one such service operating in Blaby, and since it started has grown rapidly so that it now provides weekly visits to 88 elderly residents in the area, with a further 26 still awaiting a befriender. Several emh homes residents volunteer as befrienders.
This is clearly a popular and much-needed service in the area, but as a voluntary organisation it relies heavily on donations, which is why we are supporting a new crowd-funding campaign to raise £20,000 to help further develop this essential service.
