Essex Befriends Volunteer Training


Essex Befriends is a countywide volunteer-led befriending service, offering support and encouragement to adults who are most likely to experience loneliness or social isolation.

As an Essex Befriends volunteer, you will be required to complete this training before you join our network of people helping to reduce loneliness and isolation across Essex. When you start your training, you will automatically be added to a group of fellow befriending volunteers across Essex, so that you can share your thoughts and experiences of Befriending.
