Befriending Advocacy & Support

Supporting Individuals through Befriending Advocacy

At SIRG (Social Inclusion and Resource Group), our mission is centered on fostering meaningful connections and supporting individuals through befriending advocacy. We understand the profound impact that loneliness and isolation can have on mental and emotional well-being, which is why we are dedicated to providing companionship, support, and practical assistance to those in need.

Our Approach

At SIRG, we believe in the power of human connection. Our approach to befriending advocacy is rooted in empathy, compassion, and respect for each individual’s unique circumstances. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs and preferences, tailoring our services to ensure they receive the support that is most beneficial to them.

Companionship and Emotional Support

Loneliness can often feel overwhelming, but no one should have to face it alone. Our team of dedicated volunteers are trained to provide companionship and emotional support to individuals who may be experiencing isolation. Whether it’s through regular phone calls, virtual meetings, or in-person visits, we are here to lend a listening ear, offer encouragement, and provide a sense of companionship to those in need.

Practical Assistance

In addition to emotional support, we recognize the importance of practical assistance in helping individuals navigate the challenges they may be facing. Our volunteers are available to assist with tasks such as grocery shopping, running errands, or accompanying clients to appointments. By alleviating some of the day-to-day burdens, we aim to empower individuals to live more independently and confidently.

Community Engagement

At SIRG, we are committed to building stronger, more inclusive communities. Through our befriending advocacy programs, we not only support individuals on an individual basis but also work to foster connections within the community. We collaborate with local organizations, businesses, and volunteers to create opportunities for social engagement and meaningful connections.


At SIRG, we believe that everyone deserves to feel valued, supported, and connected. Through our befriending advocacy services, we strive to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals who may be experiencing loneliness or isolation. Together, we can create a more compassionate and inclusive society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
