Befriending Services

The Civil Service Retirement Fellowship (CSRF), one of our trusted partners, is a charity dedicated to helping all retired civil servants, their partners and dependents enjoy a better and more fulfilled retirement.

Can you help?

CSRF are looking for volunteers who can provide companionship to those in later life who find themselves lonely or isolated. These visits can make a real difference in people’s lives and provide much needed social contact.

With Britain’s ageing population, loneliness is only getting more common and befriending schemes play a huge role in alleviating this struggle.

All their volunteers are provided with training prior to beginning their volunteering and all reasonable travel expenses are reimbursed. CSRF ask that volunteers need to be able to commit to 6 months of visiting.


For more information or to register your interest, please contact CSRF on or 020 8691 7411.
