We’re delighted to be able to congratulate BeFriend (formerly Seton Care Befrienders) who have received £325,336 over five years from the Big Lottery’s Investing in Communities fund. Having worked with BeFriend to produce these reports on their service, we are very pleased that the good work we found in our evaluation has been recognised and will be able to continue.

The award will allow volunteers to continue visiting people, going out with them, and helping them to stay active. BeFriend will be able to re-start a social group and will be appointing a new worker.
