About us

Friendship at home is a service for older people who are resident in the Grimsby and Cleethorpes area. We offer a home visiting service as well as introducing people to each other through our Friendship Club and Lunch Club. We also encourage the more able-bodied to join in with our exercise groups.

Making a difference


Social isolation can lead to depression, anxiety, loneliness, and loss of confidence.

Many benefits


As people grow older there may come a time when for many social isolation becomes a real problem and there are a variety of reasons why.

  • Bereavement
  • Few or no relatives living nearby
  • No close neighbours
  • New to the area
  • Poor health or poor mobility which confines them to their home
  • Hospital discharge, or admission.
  • (And there are many more)

Becoming a volunteer


Anyone can become a Friendship at Home volunteer and help out with our various activities or become a valued member of our befriending team.

Although the majority are received from Social Services and Health Centres, family, friends, neighbours or the client themselves can refer also.
