I have been contacted by a constituent who would like you to support a befriending service for elderly people who live on their own. It would identify those people living alone. Would you support this?

Answered By:

Building stronger communities has been one of the key priorities of my volunteering plan - Team London. Through that work I have supported several projects which have benefited older people including those which provide befriending services. I recommend that your constituent contacts Team London, with full details of the project, to see how we might be able to support.
