Befriending Networks are offering new guides for befriending schemes, who are currently transitioning to ‘distance befriending’
Distance befriending can describe any befriending relationship which can be conducted from a distance using some form of communication technology. A befriending match which is established through distance befriending means the two people involved, the service user and befriender, may never meet.
