WELCOME TO BUTTERFLIES FRIENDSHIP AND SUPPORT SERVICE
Everyone needs other people, but not everyone has someone.
Butterflies Friends is a community-based friendship support service that reaches out and meets the needs of lonely and isolated people, so that they know that they are not alone, and someone cares for them.
Butterflies Friends offers supportive, reliable connection through volunteer befrienders to people who would otherwise be socially isolated.
We organise support for all ages and from all backgrounds, no one is ever excluded from being part of our project if they are lonely and isolated.
As we have found the results of the Butterflies Friends service has been significant and has been able to provide new direction, opening the doors for new activities and greater social inclusion.
Our Butterflies Friendship Service has enabled people to integrate into the wider community, to increase self-esteem and self-confidence.
Butterflies Friends also helps to reduce the burden on other services and enhances greater cohesion with other agencies in the heart of the community
Thanks for introducing me to my friendship buddy. Its a great help whilst isolating. Thank you for this valuable service
