The Black Health Initiative Befriending Programme aims to address social isolation of the older person and to fill the gap by also supporting the carer, each Befriender is matched to meet the needs of the client  through a team that reflects the diverse population of Leeds.

For each session with the Befriender there will be a charge of £10 which covers the volunteer expenses and also supports the ongoing training
