Befriend Partnership

As part of the 2017/18 Community Budget Submission process, the City of Vincent entered into an agreement with Befriend Inc. to expand the Befriend social network into the Vincent area as a way of combatting loneliness amongst seniors. 

The project involves recruiting and supporting older volunteers to host small, casual social events in the Vincent area. The events will create everyday social experiences (dog walking, board games, afternoon tea, social sports etc) that will work to form genuine local friendships, improve mental health and self -efficacy and increase community cohesion. 

Please visit our events page to find out about the latest Befriend events.
