Community Friends

< Back to all courses

Community Friends is a Thanet-based befriending project working in partnership with other Initiatives and Local Authorities such as Orbit housing. The project supports residents in Thanet experiencing social isolation and loneliness due to a variety of reasons. Through the project, Community Friends can help individuals to engage in their local community and social activities, facilitating them to form and develop new relationships and overall, improve wellbeing.

Within the project there are also opportunities for volunteer befrienders who are willing to regularly provide 2 hours per week, or even 2 hours per fortnight, to form a friendly and trusting relationship with those referred to the service, whether that is visiting them in their home, going to a local coffee shop or assisting with grocery shopping.
