The Good Practice Guide: Starting a Befriending Service

Starting a Befriending Service is an introductory guide for those thinking about or beginning to set up befriending. It is free and a public resource for anyone who needs it.


It provides information about what befriending is, types of befriending and the logistics needed to set up a service. We hope this guide will prompt and inspire you to consider how to set up the most effective service for your community. 

If you decide that you are going to set up a befriending service, we encourage you to consider becoming a member to access further training and resources (like The Good Practice Guide: Running a Befriending Service, referenced in this document)
