4ever Friends is a befriending service for the local LGBT+ community. Its aim is to reduce isolation, loneliness and depression by introducing you to services where you can meet some 4everfriends. Volunteer “buddies” will be able to support individuals and offer a hand in introducing you into other services such as drop-in / groups.
They will be able to stay in touch as much as you require and attend services with you, offer a listening ear, advice and information,as well as link you into other services such as food vouchers, employability, benefits, housing and homelessness advice, domestic abuse support and other services as needed. This service is open to anyone that wants it, initially for around 6 weeks,but can be extended as needed.
