Notes and Video from On-Line Befriending

99 people from all over the UK registered for the Befriending Facilitated Conversation on 24th Nov.
Feedback was positive with many sharing their appreciation of the presentation from our 4 speakers. This is what Becca Hopkins from Refugee Roots had to say:

‘ I really enjoyed attending the City of Sanctuary conversation around Befriending. It was a great reminder that there are so many other organisations and individuals working towards the same thing and that we’re not alone in our ventures. I enjoyed hearing from the three guest speakers who all had something different to bring and I had lots to take away to help improve our befriending work at Refugee Roots. The event was well managed and stuck to the time schedule, which I really appreciated as it was in the middle of a very busy work day. COS are doing great work across the UK and I really enjoyed being able to learn and get a much better picture of this. Thanks!’


Attendees broke into several smaller groups for discussions on the barriers and solutions and shared their practice. Feedback from groups is in the recording and the following full report.
