confronting loneliness

celebrating friendship


The Link is a small charity with a big heart. We aim to reduce loneliness, promote friendship and improve wellbeing of the older people in our community.


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.
