Buddies Befriending Service is funded through the Great Aycliffe and Middridge Area Action Partnership (GAMP) and aims to help reduce loneliness and isolation.
Volunteer Buddies can provide support to help people access social activities in the community and to build confidence.
Free transport is provided door to door and on arrival there will be a short registration form to complete to register you with Buddies Befriending Service, enabling you to be matched with a buddy volunteer. All you will need to pay for are entrance fees where applicable, and your own refreshments.
If you would like to book your place or are interested in having a buddy or if you know someone who would benefit from the service, please contact the project team on 01325 329933 or email:
