Community Companions befriending project
We are a free of charge, confidential and non-judgemental befriending project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, giving high quality support to people living in Bridgend County Borough.
Coordinated by BAVO in partnership with Neath Port Talbot Council for Voluntary Service, we provide a flexible service to people who maybe isolated and lonely.
We are not a substitute for professional services, we are here to complement existing support and we value our working relationships with other agencies.
If you are feeling lonely and isolated we can help.
•Lonely with no extended family or friends around you?
•Would you like somebody to accompany you when you’re going out and about?
•Transport is a problem and you can’t get to the places you’d like to visit?
•You’d like somebody to pop in for a chat and a cup of tea?
Wouldn’t it be nice if somebody could...
•accompany you to a community café, a local group or activity of your choice?
•call in for a chat or take you shopping?
•take your dog for a walk with you?
•play a game of scrabble over a cup of tea?
We support many people just like you through our volunteer befrienders.
