Covid 19 and lockdowns have caused many of us to feel more isolated than ever in our communities and a weekly phone call to someone can really help their mental health and well-being.

The Befriending project supports people in Newhaven and Hailsham who might benefit from weekly contact with one of our trained volunteers.

If you are feeling lonely or isolated from your local community, don’t sit at home feeling cut off, give us a call and we can match you with a volunteer who will keep in regular contact.

Or, if you have time to spare, enjoy meeting new people and want to find out how to become a befriending volunteer, making a difference to someone’s life, please get in touch for more details. All of our volunteers receive full training for the role and are fully supported throughout the befriending relationship.
