Our Purpose

Be A Friend

You can join your local group: be part of the community and keep up to date as to what is going on. Everyone is welcome, whatever your age, background, or current situation.

You can offer to volunteer: this can be anything that you might be able to do from shopping and delivering supplies or prescriptions to helping with social media or walking dogs. See what your local area might need.

You can help us reach others: ‘Like” the Facebook page, comment and share this page onto your timeline so others can use it.

You can reach out to us if you need community support.

We help our community

Everyone, regardless of circumstances, religion, politics, or needs. We delegate support to the lowest possible level (often street communities and WhatsApp groups). We put people in touch with each other to build communities of interest and we use volunteers to offer support to those who are without friends, family or other conventional mechanisms in the local area.

We build for the future

We share ideas, skills and lessons, so that we can be stronger together. We actively work to build links between different outlooks, in order to generate understanding and mutual support.

We ask others for help

We ensure that borough, county and national structures have insight into what our community needs. In best practice, what is working and when specialist help is needed (for an individual, a business, a family), by connecting people as quickly as possible into the options available to them.
