Arncott Parish Council


Tandem Befriending is pleased to announce the launch of its service in Bicester. Already established in Oxford the project offers one to one befriending for people in Bicester and the surrounding villages who are over the age of 18 and who have suffered from a period of mental ill health. Whether they want someone to go for walks with them, have coffee or to help them attend an evening course, we aim to match them with a volunteer with similar interests to help improve rebuild their life. Volunteers come from all walks of life, and we are keen to hear from anyone over the age of 18 who is willing to volunteer for an hour per week, for a minimum of 6 months. Volunteers need no previous experience and are offered training, ongoing support and supervision from the Development Worker, and expenses. All volunteers are asked to undertake a DBS check (previously a CRB check) and to attend our two day training course. We would be delighted to hear from anyone who might wish to be befriended or who might like to volunteer with us. For more information please contact Lisa Ward (Development Worker) on 07720 871923 or by emailing Website: Registered charity number: 1078112
