Are you feeling isolated or lonely due to your epilepsy? Our befriending service can help.

How does the Befriending Service work?

We match you with a like-minded volunteer befriender who will support you in taking part in social activities. These social activities can include:

  • Sport/physical exercise
  • Cultural outings and activities
  • Eating out
  • Informal learning opportunities
  • Shopping

    What does a befriender do?

    Our Befrienders can provide support for you to gain confidence in social situations and to lead a more independent life. 

    A Befriender is someone:

    • who is friendly and approachable
    • who will go out with you once a fortnight
    • who will try new activities and see new places with you
    • impartial to whom you can talk
