Befriending Week 2023

1st - 7th November marks 11 years of Befriending Week and the team at Befriending Networks hopes that this year's campaign will celebrate and strengthen our sector.

This year the overarching theme is Befriending is Support and for this reflects the support befrienders give to befriendees, the support provided by befriending organisations to befrienders, and the support our network creates for the sector.

Weaving through this is the proud role that Befriending Networks takes in bringing members and supporters together to advance their vision of a society that values befriending, recognises its importance, and provides befriending support to everyone who needs it.

Join us by getting involved in Befriending Week 2023 by sharing case studiesraising awarenesssupporting via social media, and attending Befriending Week events.
