Only 1 month to go. Are you ready? This year the theme puts a spotlight on health and wellbeing. To help you prepare for this year’s celebrations, visit the Befriending Week Resources section of our website to download the free resource pack . This includes social media posts, Facebook cover image, Twitter banner, certificates and more. Well done to the 50+ members who have already downloaded their Befriending Week resource pack.

Each day during Befriending Week, Befriending Networks will be sharing stories of how befriending is making a difference. In the past, stories have received significant coverage by the media, so if you want your service featured, email Muriel and Peggy with a story about a befriendee, a volunteer, a match, an organisational milestone or a staff member going the extra mile along with a photo or video. Don’t wait, send us your stories today.

Make sure to let us know about your Befriending Week plans and tag Befriending Networks on your social media posts, @BefriendingNetworks for Facebook an @Befriendingnet for Twitter, so we can like an share them.
