Befriending is a great way to:
- Meet others
- Learn new skills
- Gain confidence
- Bring the outside world in to someone who is lonely
We train and support all volunteers. We also pay for travel and other costs so that you are not out of pocket.
Can you spare a couple of hours a week?
We are currently looking for temporary distance befrienders during the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as befrienders for in-person visits for the future.
You could make a big difference to someone’s life, including your own! Contact us for more information.
What happened when Margaret met Jason?
Jason and Margaret started meeting in May 2016. They enjoyed chatting about anything and everything. Jason looks forward to his weekly visits and feels he has gained confidence by getting to know Margaret in her home. Margaret liked Jason’s visits as ‘he brings the outside world in’.
