Could you provide someone with company, emotional support and practical help?
Befriending / Visiting volunteers needed for Sue Ryder-Duchess of Kent Hospice
The Sue Ryder Befriending Service supports families facing the challenge of a life-limiting condition.
Volunteer befrienders make weekly visits to provide company, emotional support and practical help. This might involve having a cup of tea and a chat, taking someone out and about, or running a couple of errands.
This support means that people don’t have to face the challenge alone and can spend the time they have left in the way they choose.
