who we are

The Link Visiting Scheme is a befriending charity in Wokingham Borough. It’s mainly for older people who need extra friendship and support. We match volunteers with those who would love to see a friendly face on a regular basis, perhaps once a week for an hour or so.

We work in partnership with Wokingham Borough Council and local charities and organisations, with the aim to reconnect people with their community.
