The results of befriending can be very significant. Befriending often provides people with a new direction in life, opens doors to a range of activities and leads to increased self-esteem and self-confidence. Befriending can also reduce the burden on other services which people may use inappropriately as they seek social contact.
Sightline believes in the intrinsic value of befriending relationships and will provide the service for as long as people feel they want it.
“These conversations are a lifeline and frequently my
volunteer is the only person that I will speak to for several days.”
