To see how our YOPEY Befrienders are doing, see our leaderboards.

For news about our schemes between care homes and schools click here.

A YOPEY Befriender is a young person who volunteers to visit a care home near their school and befriend lonely residents, many of them with dementia. YOPEY Befrienders are easing loneliness while learning life lessons and vital skills for the future.
