About Friendship at Home

Friendship at Home CIO is a registered charity that began in September 2006 initially funded by a legacy left to Help the Aged, when a senior member spent the day with the local Handy Van and witnessed first-hand the loneliness and isolation that older people faced on a daily basis and wanted to make a commitment to help. The scheme initially only covered the Cleethorpes area but it soon became evident that more needed to be done.

Friendship at Home now offers friendship and support to older people, covering the whole of North East Lincolnshire.

We offer a variety of services for older people which include befriending, social clubs & activities, exercise groups, dementia support & advice, information & signposting and much more.

Our weekly social clubs and activities give older people a place to meet and have a chat over a cup of tea, building friendships that often continue outside of our clubs. Members have stated that it gives them a purpose and something to look forward to during the week.

For those receiving our befriending service, having a regular visit from a volunteer helps them to feel valued and cared for, which in turn increases their self esteem and confidence and lessens their feelings of loneliness and isolation.
