Befriending Service

Befriending Service

The ECA set up a befriending Service in April 2019 to January 2020. The service was supported by a grant from Enfield Small Projects Fund.

The befriending programme offered a service primarily at elderly Caribbean residents in Enfield and to people who were identified as having particular needs, usually involving social isolation, often within a specific geographical location.

Befrienders met befriendees in their home and for one or two hours a week. We are hoping to resume the service in the new year. If ou are interested in becoming a befriender or want more information please contact us.


Become a Volunteer

We are planning to develop a register of people to act as befrienders to the BME elderly in the Borough. Volunteers will be required to visit isolated elderly BME people in their homes to encourage and support them for 1/2 hours per week.
