        I would like to volunteer as a befriending buddy , I have worked for 30 years in the care industry , I am disgusted with the state of social care for the elderly in this country , currently I work part time providing cleaning services for the elderly and I see many people who are so lonely it saddens me . Any little thing I can do will help . I have a recent dbs certificate .

    Hello my name is Emily,

    I was wondering are you still needing people for befriending service I work for the NHS in the community, I see so many elderly people that are lonely and don’t see or hear from anyone in months. I have time in the week to offer Even if it’s talking to someone on the phone for 30 mins a week will benefit there mental state.
