2019 Edinburgh & London Annual Conferences

"Brilliant variety of speakers that I felt were genuinely interesting and helpful."
"Listening to all the speakers really encouraged me as a volunteer to give more time to befriending."


Each year, the Annual Befriending Conferences offer opportunities to learn, network, share practice, be inspired and find out what's on the horizon for befriending. This year's conference theme puts the Spotlight on Health and Wellbeing. Through a full day of speakers and workshops, find out about the exciting ways befriending is having a positive impact on befrienders and befriendees, discover how innovative technology is being used to support health and wellbeing, learn about the impact of social prescribing and more.
