Our befriending service provides an opportunity to reduce loneliness and isolation, and is made possible thanks to funding received from Tyne & Wear Community Foundation and Akzo Nobel International. The project is currently being run remotely, meaning that during the COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face befriending won’t be available. Instead, this service will run via email for the time being.
Who is this service for?
This service is open to anyone LGBT+, residing in the North East of England, who is experiencing loneliness or isolation, or someone who wants to expand their friendship group and talk to other members of the LGBT+ community within the region.
