Henna Asian Women’s Group

Befriending service

We offer a befriending Service for Asian men and women, who are over 75 and living in London. We offer this service for six months on a weekly basis. Our aim is to reduce isolation within older, housebound ethnic minority individuals and increase their access to mainstream services.  Henna volunteers will discuss what you might want to do with them. It could be anything from:

  • visiting a museum
  • going for a walk or coffee
  • taking part in a social activity or any other activity you might want to get involved with.
