“Jill visits me every week and has been doing so since my husband died. She is so kind to me and we always chat for a while and she always cheers me up when I am low.� Sutton Befrienders is a volunteering project which aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness for people living in the London Borough of Sutton. We work with older people and adults with support needs, who have found themselves lonely or isolated, whether through ill health, lack of mobility or lack of regular contact with family and friends. The Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness found that more than 9 million people always or often feel lonely and that around 200,000 older people have not had a conversation with a friend or relative in more than a month. If you would like to help make someone feel less lonely and can spare an hour or two a week then please get in touch by emailing: befriending@vcsutton.org.uk or phoning 0208 661 5910.
