Masterclasses return to Befriending Networks in 2024

"Very useful for anyone working with Befriending or setting up a service. Also great for an established Befriending service looking for improvements, or how to do things differently."
"Just to express my thanks for arranging this training, Befriending Networks has been a lifeline to our project. Befriending Networks is also lovely in that the staff present in a very natural, informed and approachable way."

In 2024, Masterclasses return to Befriending Networks. In November 2023, we asked our members which topics needed support. 31% responded that funding and financial security were the biggest concern. Due to this, we are pleased to offer two free virtual events to support our members. These are exclusive to members of Befriending Networks and are designed to allow both learning and networking. We are thrilled to have guest speakers for both events, bringing a wealth of knowledge and insight to our members in attendance.
