Everyone needs friends – but making that first step can feel hard.  

Befriending Volunteers are there for adults of all ages in Derbyshire who are feeling isolated or who are finding it difficult to get out and do the things they would like to.  Whether it’s a regular visit, a friendly phone call or email, or supporting someone to take part in activities outside the home, why not volunteer to help someone in your local community?

Their Say

"Being a Befriending Volunteer brings me in to contact with some amazing people. I find it interesting and heart-warming – and it make me realise how fortunate I am."
