One of the key areas of the Butterflies Friendship service, is providing the opportunity to meet with other people, to encourage greater interaction and increased the social circle as well as possible.
From consultation with our social prescriber links and the people that we are providing friendship and support to, its apparent that the need to be able to go out and spend time with others in a relaxed and informal way would be appreciated.
Our Butterflies Friendship Walks provide the chance of additional support from others by undertaking physical exercise and getting out in the fresh air for a gentle stroll and talk with others who are lonely.
We are creating walks to suit different abilities and in different areas as part of the community outreach work that we are developing across the communities of Hampshire.
