Befriended was born out of a desire and passion to make a difference in the lives of isolated and vulnerable people. What makes the difference to each of them is the gift of time, a friend, someone to be there for them. Roy and Jane, an elderly couple, downsized into their new home with no family nearby. Having lived in the same community for many years not knowing anyone in their new environment was isolating and strange. Within a couple of days they were exhausted, alone, and anxious not knowing where or who to turn to.

There are people like Royand Jane in all our local communities. One hour a week of your time can make all the difference to them.
