Befriending Scheme (Ilkley and District Good Neighbours)


We run a befriending scheme for isolated older people in the lower Wharfe valley covering Addingham, Ilkley, Burley in Wharfedale and Menston.

Our volunteers are matched with an older person and they visit them once a week or every 2 weeks for an hour or so, to provide friendship and company, we may also be able to accompany on a short trip out.

We welcome volunteers from the local area and volunteers must be 18 and over.
