Forming Friendships – Reducing Loneliness

Volunteering Opportunity- The Voluntary Network

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, covering Newmarket, Haverhill, Bury St Edmunds and surrounding villages. Our Face to Face service was paused during the lockdown but we are now resuming visits again in a safe and secure way.

If you have an hour to spare each week 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.

If you don’t have time to make house visits then we also have clients who benefit from weekly chats on the telephone.

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.
