13 Rivers Trust

We currently provide Befriending services to individuals reaching End of Life and those who are terminally ill, with a particular focus on BAME community. That said, we support anyone who is vulnerable, e.g. shielding senior citizens, those going through life hardships such as loneliness, anyone with mental and/or physical difficulties, and anyone who needs some extra support.

Information for volunteers

Our main asset is our volunteer team, who provides 1:1 as well as telephone Befriending to our vulnerable service users. We appreciate that many volunteers have other commitments, so we adopt a flexible, yet committed approach. We also adopt a mutual benefit approach, so we provide our volunteers with all-rounded support and information to support their Befriending services.
