What we do
We support people experiencing mental distress to take on meaningful and satisfying social roles within their local communities. The service sustains and nurtures each person’s capacity to have more control over their lives.
We offer companionship to people who are lonely and isolated and an opportunity to leave their homes and pursue an interest.
Our befrienders can provide escorts to and from appointments, enable individuals to deal with paperwork and form filling and help people cope with the tasks related to daily life.
The Flexicare befrienders are not mental health professionals but trained befrienders who have an awareness of mental distress and a commitment to enablement and empowerment.
