West Cumbria Mental Health Partnership

Two's Company Keswick

Two’s Company Keswick launched in the summer of 2021 as a partnership between Churches Together in Keswick and the Keswick Rotary Club with the support of Age UK West Cumbria, and as part of a partnership agreement with Linking Lives UK. 

Our overall aim is to reduce social isolation and loneliness in the Keswick and surrounding CA12 area through befriending, either as a weekly 1-2 hour face to face visit or by a weekly 30 minutes telephone conversation.

We aim to recruit volunteer befrienders from the local community who are interested in people, good at listening and want to make a difference. They are all trained and DBS checked, whilst those wishing befriending are referred through social prescribers, other local organisations, friends and family or self-referrals. Befrienders and their friends are then ‘matched’ considering personality and interests.

Those wishing befriending are referred through social prescribers, other local organisations,
friends and family or self-referrals – and after an initial assessment will be ‘matched’ up with
a befriended for a weekly visit or phone call.

For general information contact Fiona, the scheme coordinator, by email, mobile or through the website.   

Referrals can be made through the website or by phone.
