West Norfolk Befriending is a registered charity established to help alleviate social isolation in older people living in West Norfolk. We were set up in 2002 as a partnership of three voluntary organisations; Age Concern West Norfolk, West Norfolk Carers Association and West Norfolk Deaf Association.

Since then West Norfolk Befriending has become an independent charity in its own right.

West Norfolk Befriending does not currently charge for its services.
It is funded by grants from a mixture of sources and donations. King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council supports the work through a grant.
Other funders include: Heritage Lottery, Tesco Bags, Norfolk Community Foundation.
WNB welcomes the many community groups that fundraise to help WNB continue the work in the local community.
West Norfolk Befriending aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness. It improves life quality by matching isolated older people with trained and DBS-checked “volunteer befrienders,” who will visit them on a regular basis

Over 15 years of serving our community
