We offer residents of Westminster and the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea the chance to engage with like-minded people who live locally. We provide taster sessions throughout the year introducing different activities, coffee mornings and seasonal events. The sessions offer a safe space to share experiences and make new friends, build social network opportunity to share and express themselves. This service is free and provided by Octavia Foundation.

We have had several success stories of people benefiting from these social engagements that they even have established long time friendships outside of the Group Befriending.

People can be referred from external agencies, self-referral or from loved ones who believe they can benefit from this service. The service is available to isolated and vulnerable adults aged 18 and above.
