We want you

We are launching a new befriending service "Two's Company" for adults with learning disabilities, who live in the London Borough of Bexley.  Our aim is to introduce a befriender to a person who is socially isolated.  Befrienders will be trained and supported throughout their role and whenever possible, introduced to someone who has interests in similar social activities.  This could be going to the cinema, out for a meal, swimming etc.  Volunteers will receive expenses to cover their costs.  If you are a friendly, honest and reliable person, who can spare a few hours once or twice a month, this could be an opportunity for you to really make a difference to someone’s life.  

For more information about becoming a volunteer befriender contact Stephanie Raven - Befriending Co-ordinator on 0208 303 6336 or  email
