Here is what one of our scheme members has said about what we do and her befriender:
“Meeting my befriender and her son has transformed my life… [I] am not sure where this poem came from but when [I] read this poem it immediately reminded me of all the kindness and care [I] have received from the befriending service; Thank you for loving, for giving and sharing, thank you for listening, helping and caring; for all the wonderful things that you do, but most of all thank you for just being you!” – Scheme Member
And this is what one of our amazing volunteers has said:
“It’s been a very pleasant surprise that, while I knew that I would feel good sharing my time with my befriending match, I have been astonished at how much I learn every time I see her. It’s completely changed my opinion of older people and has changed the way I behave with people in the street too… I always make time for a chat with someone in the supermarket queue, for example, as you’ve no idea how lonely the rest of their day might be.” – Volunteer
