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
"Your Masterclass in Befriending was really good and gave a really good look at what should be required for a successful befriending services. We have been befriending of over 7 years and it is great to have learned new things." -Happy @ Home Project
