North Dublin Befriending Service

Interested in Volunteering? Could you give a few hours a week to become a “Befriender”? Could you help someone who is feeling isolated? We have people all over North Dublin who are in need of our support. We are in urgent need of older volunteers from 30 years upwards especially Men and Women over 40 years. You would need to be sincere, dependable, fun, and friendly and have a genuine willingness to help. We provide a training course and support for all our volunteers.

Who Are We?
