Our befrienders

We offer ongoing contact through our befriending service, helping to reduce loneliness and build self-esteem

Once you are being helped by our mental health support team, we can offer you continued contact through our befriending service.

Our volunteer befrienders can offer ongoing support on your recovery journey – with a weekly, fortnightly or monthly phone call – giving you the opportunity to talk with someone regularly, develop a relationship and increase your general confidence. We have found that regular contact with befrienders helps those being supported by us to reduce their feelings of isolation, loneliness and depression and to build their self-esteem.

Befrienders listen to you and don’t judge. They respect your feelings and circumstances. They are there to provide you with social and emotional support as part of your ongoing recovery journey.
