Time to Talk Befriending

Time to Talk Befriending is a befriending charity, helping older people to overcome loneliness through long lasting friendship, connection and engagement. In 2020 research, members and volunteers told them what the lockdown felt like for them and how the befriending model can help move them forward in the future. This grant will support the charity to steadily absorb the growth so they can ensure the befriending model stays quality focused and manages the increase in complexity because of, for example, decline in mental health of members and an increase in referrals for older people living with dementia in the community.
