Befriending is an activity that is so underestimated and often overlooked when listing skills available to others. When we think about what we have to offer we generally list practical skills and take for granted the personal skills that we have.

Befriending is an activity that can truly make the world of difference when somebody is lonely or without the support of any close friends or family. It can provide an emotional boost and give the recipient something to look forward to and often provides an opportunity to chat and to be heard, something that should never be taken for granted.
