Faith groups

Many faith groups offer befriending and social activities for their local residents including coffee mornings, lunch clubs and other social activities. These in-person activities will be resumed as soon as government guidelines allow. They may also provide befriending phone calls or visits to those unable to leave their home. Contact your local church for further information.
