Befriending – for people with dementia
Our Befriending service will connect you with a trained volunteer so you can do more of the things you enjoy out and about, or at home.
‘The highlight of my week is seeing and spending time with my befriender who is like part of my family. It’s a very worthwhile service which has made me feel mentally and physically better.’ - Julie, who has dementia
