Masterclass in Befriending Good Practice
"One of the best things I got from yesterday's Masterclass was the feeling that I am not alone. Sometimes I feel as though I am in bit of a bubble and struggling to get out to speak to someone else who understands the problems faced within a service such as ours. Also to have someone else to speak with when I have something to celebrate." Wendy, Age UK Maidstone
Befriending Networks is providing a series of FREE events across England over the next three years. Both established and new befriending projects are invited to attend. A special thanks to Her Majesty's Government (HMG) and the Big Lottery who have funded these events through their Building Connections Fund.
After three fully-booked Masterclasses in Leeds, London and Leciester in March, we are pleased to announce that we are now bringing our event to Manchester on 22 May 2019 and Peterborough on 2 July 2019.
