Details
Are you a carer of a person living with dementia? Would you like to have a befriender who gives you time each week just to be yourself? Befriending aims to remove or lessen isolation carers may experience as a result of their caring role.

Our volunteer befrienders have an understanding of dementia and carers’ needs, and are willing to spend time listening to, encouraging and supporting a carer. Befrienders support carers to become more engaged with the community, or simply have a break from caring for a little while.

Some carers like to get out and about and attend activities of interest, others may want to meet simply for a coffee & chat.

For further information contact Martha Pollard, Dementia Support & Education Co-ordinator.

This work is supported with funding from the Life Changes Trust. The Trust is funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
