The Befriending Service provides social support and companionship to people living in the community who are isolated, vulnerable or lonely. We also provide a specialist befriending service to support people in the early stages of dementia.
Provide the company of others and an opportunity to talk to someone through regular home visits or telephone calls. A Befriender can be a great link to the outside world and help access other services, pursue interests and engage in activities. Befriending can make the difference between just managing and living. The service is flexible and can be used to complement other services such as day services or home care services. Befriending can also offer a relief to family carers and peace of mind to family living away.
