Rural Community Action Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire Rural Befriending

NRB will help older people live independently for longer in their own homes, helps prevent isolation and maintains quality of life. We encourage social, mental and physical fitness through our activities. We wish to expand RBBS to a Countywide service reaching more vulnerable and lonely people.

We wish to remove barriers preventing older people from living healthy and happy lives.


We will extend our service to rural parts of Nottinghamshire not currently covered by our service. By expanding our proven track record, we will use a network of volunteers, who will offer practical and emotional support on a one to one basis, to enable and encourage more active lifestyles. Volunteers promote improved health and wellbeing, confidence and self esteem through supporting their befriendees in attending and participating in activities and social events.
