The Good Friends project is about creating a network of informal volunteers who share their time to help local people in need.
The ways Good Friends can help include popping round for a cup of tea and a chat, or keeping in touch to check someone is okay.
Good Friends offers a fantastic way to put back into your community and support someone nearby in need of help.
You can get involved by contacting the Skipton office 01756 529654 to request a form or sign up on line at goodfriends.org.uk.
We also offer a free and confidential advice and information service which helps older people, their friends, relatives and carers with a range of issues including general benefits checks, utilities, housing and care.
You can access this service by contacting the Skipton office Monday to Wednesday 9 a.m. to 4pm or leave a message on the answerphone and someone will get back to you .
