Essex Befriends 500 referrals
Essex Befriends, the befriending initiative in Essex, has been successful beyond any expectations. In well under a year, we have exceeded 500 referrals and received many compliments from people we have helped. We befriend a wide range of people in Essex, including unpaid family Carers, older people, people with a mental health condition and people with a learning disability.
This success means that we are constantly welcoming new volunteers into our service - please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join our team as a volunteer befriender.
Essex Befriends is a partnership of four charities, comprising Action for Family Carers, Mind in West Essex, Independent Age and Hamelin Trust.
