What it does
The New Horizons Befriending Service, provided by Royds and commissioned by Bradford Council, offers company and friendship to people who may otherwise have little social contact through one-to-one visits in the safe and secure familiarity of their own home.
Friendship sessions encourage those we visit to interact and keep engaged with their world – often though remembering or discussing issues that matter to them. Group befriending sessions in care homes encourage more regular friendships with fellow residents. Befriending is by prior referral only. For more details, contact us on the number below or visit www.bradforddistrictbefriending.org. Group befriending is also available and typically follows contact from a care home, supported or sheltered housing or other residential facility.
