What do Community Befrienders do ?
We support people experiencing mental health challenges to take on meaningful and satisfying social roles within their local communities. We offer companionship to people who are lonely and isolated and an opportunity to engage with services in the community. Our befrienders can provide escorts to and from appointments, enable individuals to deal with paperwork and form filling and help people with the tasks related to daily life.
The Community Befrienders are not mental health professionals, but trained befrienders who have an awareness of mental illness/challenges and a commitment to enablement and empowerment.
Hours of work can wary and depend on yours and the service user’s availability.
