Funded Projects 2022

We are proud to support B:friend, a face-to-face befriending project in Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire. Volunteer befrienders pledge to visit an isolated older neighbour once a week for one hour to help to combat loneliness.

Rayella from B:friend told us “The befriending project is going really well. It has given us the support to help process, train and pair volunteers with isolated older neighbours, providing much needed company. A lady I spoke with recently said her volunteer had “filled a hole in her life that she thought was only going to get bigger".”
