Loneliness can affect us all; you can be in a crowded room and feel completely alone.

Essex Befriends offers free adult befriending services to Carers, older people and those with mental ill health or a learning disability.

Who we are

We are a partnership service that has brought together years of experience to deliver an inclusive service. Essex Befriends has drawn on the knowledge, skills and passion of Action for Family Carers, Mind in West Essex, Hamelin Trust and Independent Age.
