Two’s Company Befriending Chislehurst
Two’s Company Befriending Chislehurst is a befriending service aimed at adults who find themselves requiring some extra friendship and support, and this is provided through weekly home visits.

We are now open for volunteers and referrals! Also if you would like to support this community project please consider donating to our crowdfunding page: http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/twos-company-chislehurst

The role of a volunteer is to carry out a regular home visit or telephone call to an allocated ‘scheme member’ usually for one hour every one or two weeks. This contact is often a lifeline for those who are unable to leave their home very often, and who have little contact with others in the community.
The majority of our volunteers report that they have an extremely positive experience within their role and that they benefit from their experience as much as their allocated friend. We are keen to build on this mutual benefit and encourage all volunteers to look for opportunities to celebrate and honour the achievements and experiences of scheme members.
