We aim to match you to a Volunteer Befriender with similar interests to your own and these volunteers will also be able to direct you towards help and advice on a range of issues should you need it.

To sign up follow this link and register your details or if you donít have a computer and need help then simply call 444010 and one of our HVA staff will be happy to help you to register.
