Gofal

Wales

Gofal (meaning ‘care’ in Welsh) is a befriending and enabling service for the over 50s in North Wales.

Our volunteers visit vulnerable older people in their homes for up to 12 weeks, helping them combat loneliness and isolation, and encourage social interaction by linking them up with services and social groups in their local communities. We also offer a professional befriending service in beneficiaries’ homes, as well as telephone support.

The service is available throughout North Wales, thanks to a £1 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

Read stories of people we've helped

Christine Barnes volunteers for a Red Cross project that she finds especially rewarding – helping people with dementia, and their carers.

Living with Parkinson’s disease can be difficult for Renate – so she was grateful when our volunteer called round to help.

Every week, Diane Bennett pops along to her local medical centre to offer nervous patients a little hands-on support.

Independent living: help people at home

From giving people confidence to doing a weekly shop, our volunteers help people to live independently in their own home.
