The b.friend project provides isolated asylum seekers and refugees in the Bristol area with one-to-one social support. b.friend provides a thorough training programme and ongoing support to volunteers, who commit to meeting with their befriendee once a week for a period of up to one year, for companionship and support.

Befriending is listening, drinking tea, laughing, being compassionate, hearing difficult stories, showing empathy, visiting a museum or art gallery, being committed, going for a walk together, learning from another culture… and it can have a profound impact on both the volunteer and the person they meet with!

To find out more about befriending, or to sign up as a volunteer, contact Sam Sayer, Project Manager: sam@b-friend.org.uk

b.friend is a project of Bridges for Communities
