Dealing with a life-limiting illness and supporting a loved one who is very ill can be among the greatest challenges we face. OxBEL Befrienders offer friendship without fear and with openness and honesty. Our Oxfordshire Befriending for Life service (OxBEL) offers friendship to people aged 18 and over who are living with a life-limiting illness. We also provide support for carers and loved ones. Volunteer Befrienders build a friendly, supportive relationship with you and those who care for you. A Befriender spends up to three hours a week talking, listening to or being with you, depending on your needs and wishes.
