Would you like someone to talk to regularly? Over the phone or perhaps someone to visit you for a chat.
Maybe you would you like someone to go with you to a local group, maybe play board games or cards, or enjoy some other hobby? Perhaps you are new to the area and find it difficult to get out and meet new friends.
Would you like to go for outings and/or day trips but cannot as you need someone to accompany you?
A befriender could help you make your life more interesting and enjoyable.
TRIP’s Befrienders are all volunteers. They have been carefully selected, trained and had a Disclosure & Barring Service check.
They are people who like to help others to enjoy life.
They will contact you at mutually convenient times and you can choose what you would like to do.
You are responsible for your own expenses for any activities include paying for car parking if you go out in the befriender’s car.
Please Note: Befrienders cannot do household chores or act as your Carer.
