What we're about

It's that time of year where we connect to you and listen to your experiences. Filling out the Befriend Annual Survey helps us understand the impact of all our work - Hosts, community members and staff members - so we can keep doing the stuff that matters and try new things too!

Look out for the paper survey at events happening 9th May - 22nd May or take 5 mins to fill it in online here 👉 Befriend Survey 2022
