Impact and Resources
Befriending makes a huge difference to peoples lives. It has enormous benefits for both service users and volunteers alike. On this page you can find videos and case studies which bring the power of befriending to life.
Tony was referred to the Connect Befriending Service after the death of his wife who was suffering from Parkinson's.
He felt incredibly lonely.
After being matched with a brilliant befriending volunteer called Charlie, he now feels less isolated. Talking to Charlie gives him something to look forward to each week and he is able to talk about his wife's passing with someone outside of the family.
