Elder Tree Befriending
Elder Tree Befriending is a local charity. We work in close partnership with Plymouth City Council and Livewell South West and our main aim is to prevent loneliness and support socially isolated and vulnerable older people to continue to live independently in their own homes.
We deliver over 91 innovative health and social engagement activities and provide volunteers to support our more vulnerable, frail and socially isolated beneficiaries in their homes.
Preventing older people losing their independence through social engagement and friendship
At Elder Tree Befriending we help older people lead full and independent lives and offer them opportunities that most thought had passed them by.
It is hugely important to us that we see our beneficiaries for what and who they are, that we listen intently to what they want and say and treat them with the utmost respect.
We do not see older people or their circumstances as a business opportunity and we do not sell or endorse products or services
Our various activities are uplifting and designed to invigorate body, mind and soul and are the ideal vehicle for peer support and new and lasting friendships.
If you know of someone who would benefit from our support, or are in need yourself, please fill in one of our referral forms.
