Befriending service a hit

A new befriending scheme for older people in Berwickshire and North Northumberland is proving a real hit, with 12 volunteers signed up and a steady stream of requests for its services.

The Early Intervention project is run by Seton Care with funding from Comic Relief and aimed at older people who may find themselves socially isolated or simply in need of a friend.

To find out more about the project, ring Terri on 01361 884000 or 07801 672167 or see the Seton Care website.
