Connect Befriending Service

South Derbyshire CVS Befriending Service supports any adult who is resident in South Derbyshire District and is feeling isolated or lonely. Volunteer Befrienders can provide telephone calls, visit people at home or sometimes support them to get out and about in the community. We also have befriending groups in Swadlincote and Hilton for people who would like to meet with a group of people who are also feeling isolated, supported by staff and volunteers with tea/coffee and cake.

As well as hearing from people who wish to use the service we also love to hear from people who are interested in volunteering with us as a befriender and supporting our groups.
