Becoming an Informed Friend

Helping people provide effective 1:1 support and friendship as they journey alongside a person living with a chronic condition.

Companionship is pivotal in the lives of people living with a chronic condition. Often they just need someone to check in, keep in touch and listen to them.
If you would like to be a positive influence in the life of someone living with a chronic condition, our ‘Still Me’ resources can help people provide 1:1 support and friendship.
Our ‘Becoming an Informed Friend’ workshop equips willing people to effectively connect with, encourage and support a person living in the community with a chronic condition. Such friendships prevent social isolation and promote mutual wellbeing. This one day workshop covers:

  • Physical issues and supporting the whole person
  • Emotional issues and supporting through transition and grief
  • Social issues and supporting self and community connection
  • Spiritual issues and supporting in crisis

If you would like us to host a two day workshop to help you get started, please get in touch.
