Befriending in Our Community
Can you offer companionship? Want to get involved in our local community? Have 2 or 3 hours to spare every week or fortnight?
Becoming a Sue Ryder volunteer is a great way to gain skills and meet new people. It can also be a very meaningful way of giving something back. We’re looking for volunteers to become Befrienders to people living near you.
Our Self Management Service supports people aged 18+ with conditions such as M.S., Parkinson’s and strokes. It may involve chatting over a cup of tea, walking to the park, going shopping, etc. This time is greatly appreciated by the people we support and their families.
As one of our Befrienders describes: “We always laugh and share joy. Her sensitivity, emotions and life experiences make it a pleasure to be by her side”.
