Our Befriending service is for people in the local community who are living with Dementia, social isolation or bereavement.
This service helps to address the needs of often isolated poeple who, due to ill health or lack of confidence, are unable to attend day centres or other community activities.
Our staff offer regular social contact and emotional support to people who are experiencing isolation and loneliness.
Our mission is to provide people with friendship and a feeling of self worth in their own homes.
Referrals can be made by family members, neighbours, social services, health agencies or self referral.
Each befriending relationship is different - we will go to great lengths to make sure that each service user has a befriender with whom they have a shared interest.
