Our Community Support Project is a recent initiative in Leeds working closely with MHA Live at Home schemes in the Horsforth, Farsley, Pudsey and South Leeds areas.  Volunteer Befrienders visit, support and motivate older people who may be recovering from a period of ill health, a hospital stay or have experienced a breakdown in their social networks.  The Befrienders help them rebuild their confidence to go out and reconnect with their community.

We are recruiting enthusiastic and dedicated Volunteer Befrienders to provide an older person with short term support:

  Just one or two hours of your time each week; daytime Mon - Fri

   Short term support for up to 10 weeks

  Make a real positive difference to combat and prevent loneliness

Become a valuable link in connecting people back to their community

Help reduce the risk of re-admission to hospital.


If you can spare a few hours on a week day, please get in touch now to find out more and apply to become our next Volunteer Befriender.  We are especially keen to hear from you if you are over 50 and/or male.
