Helen & Patti, our Karis Befriends Project Workers

The Karis Befriends project is about supporting older people who feel isolated and lonely. Our main focus is visiting and befriending people within their own homes and where possible encouraging them to get out into their local community. We arrange regular social events, trips out and opportunities to connect with others and local activities in their community. Encouraging and enabling older people to continue to connect and flourish later in life.

In addition, we are able to connect people into our Karis Befriends Advice Project, where our worker can help with benefit checks, welfare queries and help completing paperwork and making phone calls.

We continue to work in mainly Ladywood, Harborne and Edgbaston areas.

Our weekly activities

At the moment our weekly activities range from one week to the next and can look different for different people!

For some we are connecting over the phone, visiting at home, or encouraging small meet ups or trips into the local community.
