Service targets loneliness

Have your say

VULNERABLE members of the community are to be targeted by a new befriending service.

The Forest Heath Volunteer Centre, will be extending its service to Bury St Edmunds to provide those who feel isolated or in need of company with friendship and support.

Terri Hardy, volunteer co-ordinator, said: “The service helps our clients to continue living independently and combats loneliness, too.

“We always try to match a befriender with a client with a similar personality, interests, and knowledge.”
