Befriending – Evergreen Care Trust


We believe that simple, committed friendships may help reduce and prevent feelings of isolation so often experienced when you do not have family or friends close by.  Periods of ill-health or bereavement can compound this.  Evergreen Befriending is free and confidential support helping you make the most of your life experience.  It is hoped that as your befriending relationship develops you will both find it enriching and worthwhile.

You may wish to contact us yourself or, your family, or health and social care practitioners may refer you.  Each befriending relationship will be unique to those in it, however the scheme is not intended to be a domestic, sitting or taxi service.  Following referral you will be visited by our Befriending Lead to assess suitability for the scheme before carefully linking you with a registered volunteer befriender and arranging an introductory visit.  All befriending relationships are closely monitored and supported to ensure that both parties are happy.

The Evergreen Care Trust operates in accordance with the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation’s recommendations for best practice.   This is a national accreditation body which strives for excellence in this provision.

If you are looking for a friend, please contact us.
