About the Derbyshire Trusted Befriending Network

The Derbyshire Trusted Befriending Network is coordinated by South Derbyshire CVS, in partnership with Derbyshire County Council Adult Care.

It works to ensure that isolated and vulnerable adults across Derbyshire will be able to access befriending services.

Befriending Services that are part of the network are encouraged to work towards a quality standard, so that people using their services can be confident that they are safe and well run.
