Masterclasses in Befriending Good Practice

"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."


From 2019-2021, Befriending Networks has been able to run a series of Masterclasses in Befriending Good Practice to any organisation which delivers a befriending project in England thanks to funding from Her Majesty’s Government and the National Lottery Building Connections Fund. We hope that these events have been useful sources of information and networking. The period of this funding will shortly reach a conclusion, but we will make our members aware if and when funding for future events is secured. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you at other networking events, training and conferences.

If participants would like to follow up about content covered in the Masterclasses: please contact Diane Claridge, Development Officer, 07802287633, or Sandra Marsden, Membership Support Officer for England, 07516115121,

"Thank you so much for that training and for all the resources that you provide - it has been so helpful for me as we have only set up the befriending service as a response to COVID and it was something that I had no previous experience doing so your resources have really helped!"
"What I found most enjoyable was the chance to meet with other organisations, hear about their experiences, challenges and plans for the future."



There are no forthcoming events.
