“Put your faith in a friend”


Are you a special person who gets on with people , then read on as Ffrindia’ needs you to volunteer...

FFRINDIA’ is a an, exciting project for Gwynedd residents. Simply it recruits volunteers to befriend individuals who are over 50 years of age, who are lonely or isolated, or at risk of being socially excluded.

NO cost is involved for the service- it’s free, and no one will be excluded on the basis of access to care or financial resources.
