Club F.O.D Befriending Service

Club F.O.D is in the development stages of a dedicated LGBT+ Befriending Service that will be established for LGBT+ people in Reading and the surrounding areas.

Whilst Club F.O.D has historically aimed to prevent Social Isolation within the LGBT+ community, our LGBT+ Befriending Service will aim to reduce Social Isolation where it already exists.

We are planning to offer two types of service:

  • Tea-friending – A weekly or fortnightly visit to an individuals home
  • E-friending – A weekly or fortnightly phone call

The service will focus on:

  • Those who are LGBT+ and over 50 and are isolated and have Limited Social Connections
  • Those who are LGBT+ and housebound (no age restrictions) and have Limited Social Connections

During the COVID Pandemic, the E-friending service will be available for anyone over the age of 18 who is feeling isolated would like the chance to hear another human voice at the end of a phone.
Further details will be available in due course.
