Befriending

Short-term, one-to-one emotional support

Our befriending and mentoring services for disabled people and parents of disabled children provide short-term, one-to-one support. This can include emotional support, coping skills, new ideas and working towards goals.

Take advantage of our flexibility

Our peer-to-peer befriending meets your needs and gives you control. You and your befriender decide when and where to meet, and work on the goals that matter to you.

Build your confidence

Our coaching builds confidence, strong social networks and circles of support. You can develop resilience and independence, improve skills, achieve goals and take part in your community.

Feel understood and supported

Our staff are experts in supporting vulnerable people. We’ll match you with a trained volunteer who has been through similar experiences.
