Befriending Networks - How could you support Davie as a befriender?

Mon 13 Jun 2022

During Loneliness Awareness Week 2022, let's watch "Davie Grey A short story" written by our Learning & Development Officer, Victoria. Taking some of the many stories we have learned over the years from befriending projects and their volunteers’ anecdotes, this video represents just one circumstance of loneliness a service user of befriending may be experiencing: the bereavement of a partner.


This video can be used for use in Volunteer Training if applicable. After showing the video, why not ask volunteers questions like:

1. How could you support Davie as a befriender?

2. Would you feel comfortable talking to David about his wife, Isla? How would you go about this?
