Reducing Isolation

Do you enjoy making friends and chatting to people? Our Befriending Service could be for you.

We have run our successful Befriending Network for over ten years in West Suffolk.

If you would like to visit someone in their own home for a cuppa and a chat then we would love to hear from you. We try to match people with common interests who will get along and we have had many rewarding friendships develop from this.

We offer Face to Face,  Telephone Befriending or a combination of the two. 

Covid precautions and procedures are in place.  All of our volunteers undertake an Enhanced DBS check and receive a full induction.

Please do get in touch with Laura, our co-ordinator, to find out more.
