Befriending

You, or someone you know, may have lost confidence to mix with others or be housebound and have little opportunity to interact with the outside world. 

Our volunteer befrienders offer companionship, help with small tasks or can support you on a walk or trip out.  Many people involved in our friendship programme have developed long lasting connections and look forward to their weekly visit.  It also develops self-confidence, trust, increases independence and reduces isolation in a fun and relaxing way. Our friendship service has been running since 2006, supporting over 500 people since then and makes a real difference to people's lives.

Whilst you are here...

...we need your help. Did you know, demand for our welfare services increased by 13% last year with over 2,000 people turning to us for help in their time of need? Demand continues to grow as times get tougher and budgets are cut for many services across the borough. Help us to continue this vital support. For as little as £5 you can support us, just click on the Donate button below. Thank you.
