Overview

Peckham Befrienders is a Black & Minority Ethnic (BME) people (aged 18-65yrs) who are currently receiving care from our Trust

The aims/objectives of Peckham Befrienders: are to increase the social networks of our service users. This is done by providing a space for Service Users and Befrienders to form friendships within a befriending framework. We operate a group approach to befriending.

The twice weekly drop-ins offers a space for service users to access, support and befriending, culturally appropriate meals and other activities such as: Indian head Massages, support, talks and presentations on a host of subjects (e.g. how to look after your Heart, Diabetes, and controlling stress) and our reflexology service.

In addition to services offered, Peckham Befrienders is also looking for people from the BME communities who want to become volunteers.

To access Peckham Befrienders services people can be referred by CHMT’s, Doctors, Social Workers, CPN’s, or by self-referrals.
