Could you be a Befriender?

We have found that by bringing members of our community together, they get such a buzz out of the relationship that genuine long term friendships are formed. If you want a hugely beneficial and rewarding voluntary role then look no further. You will be matched with an older person in need of a friend and have weekly calls or visits.

John has a befriender called Jamie

"We got on so well from our first meeting - lots in common you see! He is like an adopted son really, and I am like hid uncle. If you had to pick two people to put together, you could not have found a better match. (Jamie has said the exact same thing to me). In summary, he is like a breath of fresh air! "
