A BIT ABOUT US
Compassion, Care, Connection
Social Buddy is about friendships.
Studies have shown isolation and loneliness increase ill-being and health problems.
We need each other!
Culturally appropriate, Social Buddy volunteers connect with people who are isolated and suffer from loneliness due to mental illness, old age or living in remote locations.
Through nurturing meaningful conversations on the phone and video chat volunteers improve a person’s quality of life and help improve social skills, build confidence, increase self-esteem and boost positive emotions.
Social Buddy is purely a friendship program that's available to anyone who needs a friend, free of charge.

* Social Buddy is not a counselling service and does not provide advice, coaching or other professional or mental health services.
