Befriending Lewis

At our recent WfM meeting Befriending Lewis informed us about their work of matching the lonely with volunteer befrienders. Sadly there is an increase of those who need this valuable service and they appealed for new male and female befrienders. Befriending Lewis exists so that people suffering from the impact of feelings of loneliness and isolation start to feel connected to other people in a positive way again. For as little as one hour per week you can make a difference to someone - become a befriender and tackle loneliness and social isolation in our community.


If you would like to get involved, please get in touch:
