Our 25th Anniversary Celebration


The Befriending Scheme provides friendship and learning opportunities for adults (16yrs+) from vulnerable groups, including those with mental health needs and older people, as well as our existing members with learning disabilities. We also offer various volunteering opportunities with extra support for those who need it.

Founded as a registered charity in 1989 as West Suffolk Befriending Scheme, our core activities are running regular drop-in centres, now known as Hubs, building meaningful 1-to-1 friendships between vulnerable people and volunteer befrienders, evening Befrienders Clubs and Saturday morning groups.

We also run one-off themed activity days, workshops and social events as well as providing volunteer training and support for carers across the county.

We are excited that we are just days away from our Skyfall Summer Ball, held at the Delphi Centre in Sudbury.

There’s still time to join us, with live music from InfraRed, table buffet & some great prizes to be won in our raffles.

We’re also having our first Q-Branch area, where we will be taking photos and live tweeting during the night.

The event runs from 6:30pm until 10:30pm and tickets are £25 or £12.50 for registered TBS volunteers.
