Information & advice News Befriending Does your caring role often leave you feeling lonely or isolated? Would it be helpful to speak to someone who understands your situation? Would you like to have someone to speak to on a regular basis? We have developed a befriending service for Carers. The role of a Carer can be isolating and stressful. A Carers UK survey found that 8 in 10 Carers feel lonely and anxious. Getting the occasional break help to extend the time that Carers can keep their loved ones at home. Our befriending service can help, this service can give Carers regular emotional support by face to face meeting or phone call.We can match you with a trained volunteer who will understand your situation, and who can get to know you. Your befriender can provide good conversation, companionship and emotional support. They will contact you weekly at an agreed time.
