Rethink Companions Befriending (East Herts) Community support

Rethink Companions is a befriending service that helps people to re-engage with their local community through social activities. There is also a carers service that gives carers information and support through one-to-one meetings and facilitates the Rethink Caring and Coping course

Our service supports people

  • aged 18+ who have a diagnosed mental illness
  • who are socially isolated
  • who are known to NHS Secondary mental health services
  • Who live in Hertfordshire in and around the towns of Ware, Hertford, Hoddesdon, Broxbourne, Cheshunt, Cuffley and Waltham Cross

We provide:

  • 121 Befriending with a volunteer or staff member to gain confidence in social settings and reduce isolation
  • Group befriending every fortnight in a community setting
  • Regular social activities & outings

Our services are normally delivered via a mixture of face-to-face one-to-one and group-based support.
