Become a Friend

Loneliness is a feeling many of us get, but for some it can dictate our lives. Social networks for people with a learning disability can be smaller than those without disabilities, which sometimes increases a feeling of isolation. Befriending can offer that additional person to someone’s life, to lift their spirits and help them live the life they want to lead.

Could you spare 1 – 2 hours per week to make a difference to a person with a learning disability living in Waltham Forest?
