A befriending scheme has been set up to provide elderly, isolated or lonely Asian people with someone to talk to.
It has been set up by Daya Kans, founder and president of the Kent Saheli Group based in Gravesham.
The purpose of the project, she says, is to provide people with a weekly visit from a befriender who can provide a listening ear and an opportunity to socialise.
Funding came from Gravesham council’s Communities and Neighbourhood Fund and was launched last week at The Woodville.
It was attended by Gravesham MP Adam Holloway, deputy mayor Gurdip Bungar and councillors Tan Dhesi and John Loughlin.
Volunteers are required for an hour a week. If you are interested, call 01322 272476 or Daya on 01474 321703.
