Making a Referral

We welcome referrals for anyone meeting our criteria regardless of faith, ethnicity, sexuality or any other characteristics.

We accept referrals from social prescribers, adult social care, GP’s, community health practitioners, charities, friends and family members and self-referrals.

Our main criteria for admission to the scheme are adults over 65 years who are living alone and within the Eastbourne area. Our service should be requested with the agreement of the person concerned. We regret that we are unable to arrange visits where there is a diagnosis of advanced dementia or conditions that impact significantly on a person's ability to hold a conversation.

 For further details please contact us on 01323 406242.

We regret that we are currently closed to new referrals while we match those on our waiting list with volunteer befrienders, and assess referrals received to date.
