Befriending Scheme

Paid for by Bracknell Forest Council, the Befriending Scheme is a service aiming to introduce trained volunteers to adults who may be vulnerable, isolated or lonely. These vulnerable adults include:

  • Those with health or mobility problems
  • People living alone having lost loved ones or with families living some distance away
  • People who find it very hard to get out and about or have other circumstances which make opportunities for developing friendship difficult¬†

The main purpose of the scheme is for the volunteer befriender to meet regularly for a planned period of time with adults they are matched with to do activities which are helpful to that person.  These activities may include:

  • Meeting for a talk
  • Going out
  • Visits to shops, garden centres, cafes etc.
  • Going to other activities in the community.

The scheme also runs regular group activities including a twice monthly coffee mornings and weekly board games with local primary children, with additional events during the year.
