Befriending services are offered through voluntary organisations. They provide opportunities for social interaction if you are feeling isolated through illness, disability, mental illness, old age or social disadvantage.
A befriender can offer you:
- someone to talk to who will listen to you
- someone to go out for a coffee or tea with
- someone to share a leisure activity with
- someone to attend a group with you
There are different organisations and groups across the county who can provide befriending services.
You can find a directory of befriending services in Derbyshire on the Trusted Befriending Network.
