Eden Care – Befriending service is a friendly intervention setup to support and empower the long term sick and those reaching end of life. Service users who are referred to our programme are paired with a befriender to support him/ her with their personal, social and spiritual needs. Befrienders will offer friendship and advocacy support to help the service user overcome difficulties. The befriender will become one of the key contact points for the service user. It is our hope the relationship will be based on trust and support.

All our befrienders will be given specialist training and support so that they can provide quality service which is non-discriminatory.  Befrienders will undergo a DBS check, vetting process so that we at Eden Care can provide the service users the best outcome.
