Although there can be huge benefits to weekly contact with a befriender, we recognise that belonging to a wider community, where possible, is the best outcome by far.
Research suggests this is especially true where this includes intergenerational connections. In this we champion the value of fringe activities run by churches that serve as connection points (i.e. clubs, cafes, dance hall events). You can find out more about how this can look in our history page.
Feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss your own context. We are more than happy to share any tips or resources - or swap notes and learn about what you're up to! Alternatively, you may want to book a talk with our founder and CEO, Debs, so that you can hear first hand the community work journey and the theological basis for displaying Kingdom culture and the hospitality of God through groups/activities.'
