About the Befriender Service

Living with and dealing with cancer can be a worrying time especially if you don't  have a strong support network around you.

Our Befriender Service has been set up to match you with a volunteer who knows what it's like to live with cancer.

Your Befriender can offer you support and friendship, help you to access social groups, support you to attend appointments and signpost you to other sources of help and advice.

All of our volunteers are fully trained and undergone relevant checks.

If you think you would benefit from our help and support, or if you want to find out more, you can contact us on (01429) 271294.

We will then match you with a suitable volunteer and arrange for you to meet up with them.
