Why is Befriending important?

Loneliness and isolation have a huge impact on physical and mental health for many people living in Neath Port Talbot.

The Wallich supports people rough sleeping and getting people into accommodation. However, we are seeing more people needing help with other wellbeing issues in their own home.

Volunteer Befrienders offer our service users in Neath Port Talbot additional support, helping them feel more connected to their community and less isolated.

Volunteer Befrienders are there to compliment The Wallich’s support staff, not replace them, simply offering companionship.
