Community Befriending



Befriending services providing regular companionship and support for seniors living at home.

Key Information

The Community Befriending Programme is run by community organisations in several constituencies across Singapore. Through the Community Befriending Programme, volunteer befrienders visit seniors in their neighbourhood regularly to keep loneliness and social isolation away. At the same time, volunteer befrienders help to act as eyes and ears so that seniors’ needs can be better understood and supported.
