Volunteer Befriending Service

Our Volunteer befriending service recruits and trains volunteers to visit clients at their home on a regular basis for company and social activities. Visits are usually 2 hrs a week and may involve a short walk, chatting at home or visiting community groups or a place of interest together. We try to carefully match our volunteers and clients in terms of their interests and backgrounds and the service is open to adult clients with a registered disability. We currently operate a waiting list so may not have volunteers available immediately.

For more information about accessing the service, or volunteering to become a befriender, please contact Charlie on 0208 831 6073 or email charliethefaut@ruils.co.ukĀ 

'Thank you for today. You really brought a lot of light into my life, especially after a few weeks of feeling very low and being deeply depressed. I walked away feeling grateful and thankful for our time and for 'you being you'. This Befriending has been a special journey and I want to say how much I appreciate you and all of your support'. From a client to her befriender.
