Pastoral Care and Befriending

Description

Volunteer befrienders regularly visit a person who is experiencing mental health issues to have a chat, go for a walk, share activities of common interest and anything which makes life more enjoyable. Befriending is a means of reducing social isolation that so often accompanies the experience of mental illness. By building up and maintaining a close relationship, social skills and confidence can be rediscovered and nutured. Each relationship is effectively a union of what the referred person needs and that which a befriender can offer. Many relationships become genuine, warm and close relationships
