Befrienders are carefully matched to those with similar interests, offering support and friendship.
How does befriending help?
- It encourages communication, helping people improve their social skills and feel more self-confident
- It motivates people to get more exercise by getting out in the fresh air
- People feel less lonely, they make friends and have someone trusted to talk to
- People are supported to explore their local communities
The service is available to anyone who attends Share. Activities are chosen by student members and meetings are typically once a week for 1-2 hours.
All volunteers are DBS and reference checked.
