Friendship is one of the most valuable gifts in life

but costs nothing

We believe that no one should have no one.
The West Kent Befriending Service is here to help you.

What we do

West Kent Befriending Service offers support for older people who are living in isolated circumstances or have little or no social contact.

Where are we?

West Kent Befriending Service is based at the Age UK Maidstone office and covers the whole of Maidstone and the surrounding villages.

What people say

The success of our service is evident from the many wonderful friendships that have been formed and response from both our members and volunteers.

Get involved!
