When I first signed up for a befriending role, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. The training is well structured and thorough, but until you get going its hard to know how the friendship will develop. My advice to anyone new would be to go with it and see what works for both people. If you are thinking of becoming a befriender, give it a go. You will get the support you need. You will make a difference to someone else’s life as well as your own.

It has changed my life in ways I cannot describe. The residents always thank me, but it is me who thanks them sincerely for allowing me into their homes to cook with them. I have met so many incredible people – staff, clients & volunteers. I get to cook the food I love, for people I care deeply about. It’s the best thing I have ever done.
