Vista’s befriending service gives you the chance to regularly meet with a volunteer who can help you to enjoy a favourite activity, get out and about or just have a coffee and a chat.
We do our utmost to match you with a volunteer who we think you will get on well with, and who will visit you on a regular basis.
We also offer a residential short stay befriending service, where a volunteer visits you during your stay at one of our residential homes and on your return home for up to twelve weeks in total.
Meeting with a befriender can make a real difference and lead to a lifelong friendship. There is a one-off fee of £20 once successfully matched to cover the service for a year.
** As you know we are currently in unprecedented times. Our head office staff are working from home and all of Vista's shops are closed. Only essential staff and visitors will be allowed in our homes.
The DeafBlind team are still providing essential 1:1 support for the people they work with. For any queries, please contact us on 0116 249 8839. **
