Be A Friend Campaign Launches


A new campaign has been launched in partnership with Inspired Youth and Ryedale Carers Support to promote the difference people can make in their community. The campaign which features real people, was devised and shaped by workshops with carers and volunteers. The 2 short films were designed to harness positive messages about the difference ‘being a friend’ in your community can make both to families but also the people who give up their time. The #Friends in our campaign say they genuinely look forward to it and that seeing the difference they make leaves them with a positive happy feeling. You can see both the films below.

“It’s just my free time for his company”


Just a small amount of your time could bring companionship to an older person living alone, or allow a carer some much needed time for themselves. If you would like to find out more about how you can make a difference to someone’s life and possibly your own, please get in touch!
