Formby Befriending Scheme

Information Sessions

Periodically, we organise free Information Sessions on a range of subjects of interest and relevance to elderly people in our community but open to everyone. In 2019 and 2020 we held the following sessions on the theme of Be Aware, Take Care.

Scams and Fraud Awareness with Co-op Bank and Merseyside Police

The Legal System with Autumn Years solicitors

An Introduction to Mental Health with Mersey Care MHS Foundation Trust

Further sessions had to be postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic but it is hoped to re-commence in 2024. We’re grateful to the Nathaniel Reyner Trust Fund for funding the costs of venue hire, refreshments and publicity.

One of our Flyers is shown below publicising one of our sessions along with examples of signposting we do with other organisations, businesses and community groups.
