Tandridge Voluntary Action (TVA) is a charity supporting voluntary, community and faith organisations in the Tandridge district of East Surrey.
Tandridge Befriending Scheme
Befriending is something that everyone can do
- Would you like to ‘make a difference’ to someone’s life?
- Do you like a chat and listening to others?
- Do you enjoy company and meeting new people?
- Do you have an hour a week to spare?
If so Befriending could be for you
The Befriending Scheme is a local service run by Tandridge Voluntary Action, which aims to provide friendship to people who are feeling lonely or social isolated.
We always have people waiting for a befriender in various parts of the district.
Our volunteer befrienders are all wanting to contribute to the wellbeing of their community and be a friend to someone who would really value some company.
Befrienders usually visit for about an hour a week, at a time that is mutually convenient and will agree with their friend how that time is spent. Some people choose to go out to a café or for a walk, others may need or prefer to stay at home.
If this sounds like something that would interest you, the Scheme Co-ordinator, Lucy Darlow, can visit you to explain more and find out about your interests.

Join us at one of our Drop In Sessions for a friendly discussion about how the scheme works, how you may be able to get involved or how this could beneficial for someone you know.
