The Formby Befriending Scheme
Who we are
Formby Befriending Scheme aims to relieve the needs and social isolation of elderly people living in the Formby, Hightown and Ince Blundell areas of Sefton, Merseyside. The Scheme offers companionship and support mainly through volunteers visiting elderly people regularly, typically weekly, for a chat, trips out, visits to local social groups, and assistance with shopping or appointments. Volunteers also encourage and signpost people to regularly attend social groups to further develop social inclusion. The Scheme also holds 2 Coffee Clubs both meeting once a month for which transport is provided where needed.
