What We Do.

West Norfolk Befriending aims to reduce social isolation by providing a link to the outside world. We match isolated older people with trained, and CRB checked volunteer befrienders who will visit on a regular basis.

Our service helps clients

We facilitate reintegration to community life wherever possible. Clients are frequently signposted to other services and organisations that may be able to help them.

We are currently funded via a grant from Norfolk County Council. From September 2012, clients can choose to use their Personal Budget to access the service that we offer. We can accept private clients who wish to pay to receive the service. This is a complete change for all voluntary sector organisations, but gives clients more flexibility around the service they wish to buy. The Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk will continue to support some of the core costs of the organisation, and we will continue apply for funding from other grant schemes.
