Online (email) and telephone parent befriending service
The online (email) and telephone parent befriending service complements the Face 2 Face schemes and delivers the same support.
To meet increasing demand, the online and telephone service has been developed to support the delivery of the befriending service to as many parents, in as many places, as possible.
Aims of the online and telephone parent befriending service
- To provide a befriending service to parents who do not have a local Face 2 Face scheme in their area
- To provide a service to those who find it easier to discuss their feelings online or by telephone
- To provide a befriending service to those with commitments that make meeting in person difficult
Online befriending service receives support from Grand Charity
We would like to thank The Freemasons' Grand Charity for providing funding support towards the Face 2 Face online befriending service. Thanks to their generous support we can develop and enhance the online befriending function, and also train more parent volunteers. This grant will enable Scope and Face 2 Face to support many more families across the country around the time of diagnosis or at other times when parents feel overwhelmed.
