Volunteer befrienders are urgently needed as the demand for this invaluable service has increased substantially this year. You may have seen recent reports from the Government highlighting the impact that loneliness and isolation has on a person's health - it is thought to be as harmful as smoking. Volunteer drivers are also urgently needed.
