Is there a difference between Befriending and Companionship?

Befriending is when another person acts as or becomes a friend to someone, especially when they are in need of help or support. Whilst companionship is; having someone you know and like with you, rather than being on your own.

Inspire Doncaster offers both with a minimum two hours service.  We accompany our clients on visits to a garden centre, to see friends, attend community groups, meals out etc. We stay with our clients from picking up to dropping off back home. We also provide an at home conversational service for those who would just prefer to stay at home and chat. Our Friends of the Bereaved service helps those who are dealing with the loss of a loved one by helping them to return to the "normal" day to day activities. 

Each Befriending relationship is different and we go to great lengths to make sure that each service user has a Befriender with whom they have a shared interest.


Carers are at the heart of everything we do.​  We are:

Friendly and approachable

Inclusive, respecting the diversity of each other’s caring experiences

Independent in advocating for carers

Committed to working with others.

Our experienced staff can help with issues such as loneliness and social isolation - offering the carer a home visit to sit with their loved one so that they can attend family gatherings, shopping trips, and have some much needed quality time alone.
