Opening Doors London

The aim of our Befriending Service is to reduce the loneliness and isolation, and to help increase the confidence and maintain the independence of older members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community aged 50+.

We aim to achieve this by matching a volunteer Befriender with an older person for regular social contact. This could be to attend a social activity, go for walks, go to exhibitions or events, or to visit members at home for a cup of tea and a chat.

We are now looking for new members to join the Opening Doors Befriending Service who live in any of the London Boroughs. So if you have any tenants/members/clients/friends/neighbours you think could benefit from regular visits from a volunteer Befriender or if you know anybody who would be interested in becoming a volunteer befriender, contact Opening Doors London Befriending by:

Telephone: 020 7239 0400
