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!
