Guernsey Linking Lives is a new befriending service run by Guernsey Welfare Service.

It is mainly aimed at those over 60 who find themselves requiring some extra friendship and support and has been set up using the model of a UK charity.

The Linking Lives Scheme seeks to match trained and vetted volunteers with an older person who would like to see a friendly volunteer visitor on a regular basis for around an hour.

Volunteer with us:

We are looking for volunteers of any age who would be willing to commit to visiting their ‘Link Friend’ for an hour once a week or fortnight. Full training and support will be provided. If you would like more information then please contact us.

For more details, please contact Jessica Girard, Guernsey Linking Lives co-ordinator on 07839 188180 or gsylinkinglives@gmail.com
