Help to make 2019 a positive year by becoming a
Bridgend Buddy
Being a Bridgend Buddy will empower you to help to make a change within your community by combating loneliness and to providing non-judgemental support.
Our dedicated project worker will support you to develop a relationship with an individual who due to their personal circumstances is experiencing loneliness and isolation. You will provide companionship and support the individual to explore activities and pursue interests, or simply just enjoy a cuppa and a chat.
We are very proud of the relationships Bridgend Buddies has helped to build previously. One beneficiary has described the scheme as ‘smashing.’ Before they became part of the project, their only interaction with the outside world was to attend medical appointments. Bridgend Buddies has got them out and about and positively changed their outlook on life.
You will see how your visits will bring invaluable change, a positive difference to your life and the individual you support. For further information please contact Anna Hatley at the Bridgend Centre anna@bridgendcentre.org.uk telephone 01625 576311
