EASE (Engaging Activity Supporting Existence) is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that delivers both therapeutic interventions as well as befriending activities. We provide training to potential befrienders and support them in their role with weekly supervision by fully qualified Psychotherapists, Psychologists and other Healthcare Professionals.

Befrienders will work on a one to one basis with their Befriendees for one to two hours a week or fortnight, depending on the individual arrangements. They can have more than one befriender, in which case their volunteering opportunities can increase.

Some people do not get out of their house much as they do not have a reason too or maybe they are worried and so Befrienders will be going out with people within a community setting to encourage the befriendees to integrate into their society. The types of activities both may engage in would be for instance going to a cafe, looking around a shopping centre, going for a walk in the park and many more similar activities.
