BASIS’S Befriending scheme, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, matches volunteer befrienders with local sight impaired and registered blind people in need of friendship and support. We are committed to preventing people in South Essex from becoming lonely and isolated.
– The home befriending service provides companionship through a weekly home visit.
– Active befriending assists with tasks such as medical appointments, learning new routes and leisure activities.
– Telephone befriending provides weekly contact with a volunteer.
Call Sarah-Jane at the office on 01268 522817 for more information.
