Have you been experiencing mental health difficulties for some time now?
Do you find these difficulties are impacting on your ability to get on with day-to-day tasks?
Could you do with more emotional support?
Neshomo can match you with a volunteer befriender who can help listen, support and encourage you with your personal goals.
You would meet up together once a week at a set time. What you use this time for can be tailored to meet your particular needs.
A befriender can come to visit you in your home, you could go out for a walk or carry out errands together that you may find challenging to do alone.
Our befrienders are carefully recruited, DBS checked, trained and supervised. This is a strictly confidential service.
Our service is separate for men and women.
What our clients have said about how a befriender has helped them:
> 89% of clients said they feel more able to decide their own future.
> 78% said that support from their befriender had reduced their social isolation.
