Archway is open to anyone over 18 years of age experiencing the distress associated with loneliness.

You can get in touch with us directly or you may be referred by an agency such as your GP, Mental Health worker or Social Services. All enquiries and requests are treated in confidence.

How to refer yourself or someone else

If you think you or someone you know might benefit from Archway’s services, please complete our Referral Form. This will help us in deciding if Archway is going to be suitable.

After receiving your referral will we arrange a meeting. This will help us to get to know you, him or her and to explore ways in which we could offer support. This may be to encourage attendance at one of our several social activities or to arrange a befriender to visit.

Since there is currently a waiting list for our Individual Support Scheme, we would recommend that anyone being referred really consider coming to one of our group activities – which are free except for a small contribution in the form of an entrance charge.
