We need
Voluntary Befrienders

New Friends

Our befriending and telephone support service provides supportive, reliable relationships to people who otherwise would be lonely and socially isolated. We need volunteers for our befriending team for both face-to-face befriending and telephone support.

If you are interested in becoming a befriender come and have chat to Pauline Hollis on 020 8979 9662 who will explain what the commitment is and the training and support we provide our volunteers.

There are a number of checks we have to go through and there is a requirement that the training is completed successfully before you take on the responsibility of supporting a local person.

Fred Newton

Sometimes it is best to see or hear the words of someone who has become a volunteer to understand the benefits to all parties by becoming a Befriender and Fred Newton is one.

"Befriending calls for mutual respect and shared interests can help to form a bond. My befriendee, Bob, and I were both widowers in our 80's and long term residents in the local area. We found we had common interests and it was a pleasure for me to share Bob's interest in boats and his families involvement in the Dunkirk Evacuation.

I particularly thank The Greenwood centre; for promoting the befriending project and enabling me to serve a real leader of men. My final words are do consider befriending, you get every bit as much out as you put in". | Fred Newton, Volunteer Befriender
