In a bid to battle the problem of loneliness in our city, the National Lottery has put 125 million pounds of funding into support organisations over the last 25 years.

One of the charities which is now set to benefit from this is Westminster Befriend a Family - which matches people to spend up to three hours a week with vulnerable and isolated families in the borough.
