Befriending Week 2021

Befriending is the simple act of giving your time to someone who needs support and friendship. 

The last two years have changed people’s lives in many ways and have been a difficult time for people in our communities who have suffered much loneliness and isolation.

This Befriending Week (1st-7th Nov) is the perfect time to consider if befriending is something you might like to do.

Age UK South Gloucestershire currently have 180 people waiting to be paired with a befriender.  If you are interested in volunteering with them click here for more information, they would love to hear from you!
