The network offers ongoing telephone support from a trained befriender to an individual more recently affected.
It is available to anyone who would like to talk to someone about the diseases and their impact. You do not need to be the one who is ill; you could be a close relative or a friend.
There are 135 trained volunteer befrienders across the UK and Ireland with a wide range of experiences. Some have been bereaved while others are coping with their own, or their child’s, life altering after effects.
No matter what your experience our Telephone Befriending Network can help and we will have someone who has gone through something very similar and who can be there for you.
