Didsbury Good Neighbours



The core of Didsbury Good Neighbours is our one to one befriending service.  Click here to view or download our leaflet for printing (opens in a new window). This service works by assigning each older person a befriender, who provides friendly conversation and companionship on a regular basis.  From phone calls, home visits, trips out and transport to Didsbury Good Neighbour’s activities.

BefriendingOur befriending volunteers offer a genuine life-line and essential assistance to individuals in the Didsbury area who would otherwise be housebound and isolated.
