4ever Friends is a befriending service for the local LGBT+ community. Its aim is to reduce isolation, loneliness and depression. “buddies” will be able to stay in touch as much as you require and offer a listening ear, advice and information on services as well as link you into other service such as food vouchers or parcels, sanitary products, condoms, utility assistance, benefits, housing and homelessness advice, domestic abuse support and other services as needed. This service is open to anyone that wants/needs it and for as long as needed.
As lockdown restrictions ease buddies may be in a position to meet up in the hub, grab that much needed coffee (social interaction) we are all craving right now.
