Befriending and Advocacy
Our Befriending and Advocacy Service engage terminally ill people and those reaching End of Life and enhance their quality of life. We provide a 1:1 person centred approach.
People referred to our project are paired with a Befriender to support them with their personal, social and spiritual needs.
Befrienders offer friendship and advocacy support to help the service user overcome issues and difficulties. Our relationship with terminally ill people and those reaching End of Life are based on trust and support.
We use Creative Art sessions to help reduce anxiety and stress amongst people who are socially isolated and those reaching End of Life.
We use the sessions to enhance cognitive and physical wellbeing. We also use artistic expression to improve mental health and wellbeing.
We deliver Creative Art sessions from hospitals, nursing homes, hospices and day care centres.
Raising awareness of end of life
We promote awareness of End of Life Issues within BAME communities and create platforms through seminars and workshops as well as through dialogue between the community, practitioners, mainstream provisions and service users.
We hope to improve existing End of Life Care to meet the needs of the BAME community and promote greater partnership working between voluntary sector organisations and the statutory sector.
We offer volunteering opportunities through our befriending programme as well as accept work placements for local people who are interested in our work.
All our Befrienders are given specialist training so that they can provide a quality service. Befrienders undergo a vetting process so that we at Eden Care can provide the service users the best possible health outcome.
Supporting the elderly
We address social isolation amongst older who are socially isolated by organising social clubs with our community partners.
Our Rapid Response Team provide speedy support to people and their families reaching End of Life. Our intervention includes providing advice and guidance as well as practical help with food and transport during their hour of need.
A designated group of trained volunteers respond quickly to the needs of people and their families. We visit them in their home, hospital, care homes or hospices.
We organise seminars and community events such as Eid in the Park.
We take part in treks and charity challenges for people interested in supporting our cause.
We organise local fundraising events throughout the year ranging from a local car wash to a sporting event.
Working in partnerships with social prescribers and other organisations, we accept referrals to support vulnerable individuals with no support network, to be supported by one of our dedicated Befrienders.
Our Befrienders are passionate individuals dedicating their time to support a vulnerable person through Befriending. They undergo vetting process and training, and have regular support from the Eden Care team.
