One to One Befriending

Welcome To The Befriending Scheme

The Befriending Scheme provides friendship and learning opportunities for people (16yrs+) from vulnerable groups, including those with mental health needs and older people, as well as our existing members with learning disabilities. We also offer various volunteering opportunities with extra support for those who need it.

Founded as a registered charity in 1989 as West Suffolk Befriending Scheme, our core activities are running regular drop-in centres, now known as Hubs, building meaningful 1-to-1 friendships between vulnerable people and volunteer befrienders, evening Befrienders Clubs and Saturday morning groups.

We also run one-off themed activity days, workshops and social events as well as providing volunteer training and support for carers across the county.

Steven’s Sweet Day In Sudbury!
Our fundraising volunteers are really important to TBS, helping raise funds so that let us continue our work with our members.

Steven has been fundraising for us for three years, taking part in events like the Great East Swim. Recently, he held a special day at The Kingfisher Leisure Centre in Sudbury, including a Bake Sale that raised over £365!

Members of Steven’s swimming class baked cakes, and of course bought them too! Our own Will Ginno was on hand as well to talk about what we do and staff also got involved with the baking.

It was an amazing effort from Steven once again, and we’re very grateful for the continued support he shows TBS and our members.

Thank You Steven!
