Befriending Service


We offer a befriending service that matches you up with volunteers who have been through similar experiences and who will stay by your side. They will be with you as you navigate your way through your current situation and help you to access specialist services which you might need to access and provide you with a single point of contact.





























We will help you to find the strength to move on in a healthy, happy and independent way.

We provide volunteers who offer a listening ear, emotional support and encouragement.  In this way, they help to support victims to exercise control and choice over their own lives.


Building on you self confidence and self-esteem, we help to give you more opportunities to socially interact and reduce feelings of isolation.  

We would not be able to continue to deliver our services to domestic violence victims without the support and dedication of volunteers. If you want to volunteer on the Befriending Scheme, click here to apply.
