Befriending and Activities

Volunteer Befriending Service

Our Volunteer befriending service recruits and trains volunteers to visit clients at their home on a regular basis for company and social activities. Visits are usually 2 hrs a week and may involve a short walk, chatting at home or visiting community groups or a place of interest together. We try to carefully match our volunteers and clients in terms of their interests and backgrounds and the service is open to adult clients with a registered disability. We currently operate a waiting list so may not have volunteers available immediately.

During COVID we have been unable to offer face to face visits but these will be reintroduced gradually as restrictions relax. We are operating a telephone befriending service.

For more information about accessing the service, or volunteering to become a befriender, please contact Gary on 0208 831 6083 or email garywilliams@ruils.co.uk
