Referrals

Friends for Life would love to hear from you!

Friends for Life provide Personal Befrienders to registered Care Homes and take referrals from Care Homes, Social Services and individuals. Each referral is considered based on need and circumstances and, due to limited resources, Friends for Life cannot guarantee to meet all referrals.

All Personal Befriender volunteers have undergone a stringent recruitment producer which includes training, an enhanced DBS check, reference checks and an interview. All volunteers are issued with I.D. badges which are to be worn on all befriending visits, and are familiar with Friends for Life’s safeguarding, equal opportunities and data protections policies.

Friends for Life’s comprehensive recruitment process means that our volunteers become well know to us and we pride ourselves on matching residents and volunteers appropriately.

Friends for Life ask that residents and/ or their family are notified of the referral and agree to receiving visits prior to allocating a volunteer. We can provide appropriate letters for this if needed.

If you would like to refer a Care Home resident to Friends for Life, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Alternatively you can email our Administrator, Pauline Carter.
