WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
We provide a local befriending service for older people (65+)
in the London Borough of Bromley.
October 2021: Our normal activities are running again.
During the pandemic our volunteer assistance was necessarily restricted to food shopping and befriending/chatting on the phone. However we are now befriending, shopping and giving lifts to medical appointments again. Unfortunately there is a general shortage of volunteers, so we often have a waiting list for help.
Our clients and volunteers met for coffee again on 6 October 2021
Someone who has been helped.
"Careplus has enabled me to stay in my own home."
Someone who is grateful.
"There is nothing worse than loneliness when you get older, but now, thanks to Careplus, I have someone to talk to."
From a volunteer.
"I see the plus of Careplus as commonsense and compassion. I cannot change the world but I can help some people in it. Saying yes to someone's request for help gives my life worthwhile meaning."
