Befriending for the Bereaved

What does it do?

As part of our Befriending Service, we can offer friendship and support to those that are experiencing loss. Feelings of loneliness can be one of the most difficult aspects to cope with, but talking about your feelings with someone who is not emotionally involved can help.

We will provide trusted volunteers however, they are not counsellors, but they can provide a listening ear through visits or by phone. When ready, they can help people stay ‘socially connected’ by accompanying them to various activities.
