Introducing FRIEND

05-197208xx-5FRIEND is an adjunct of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, staffed by volunteers, carefully selected in consultation with our professional advisors.

We befriend, along similar lines to the Samaritans, homosexuals who have difficulty in establishing good personal relationships and in accepting themselves in a largely unsympathetic society.

We are supported by a team of professional advisors to whom we can refer problems outside our terms of reference.

Our aim is to expand our network of FRIEND Groups throughout the country and individual Befrienders where no Group exists. Co-ordination of London and national befriending is organised from Centre, which is the national headquarters of FRIEND.

If at any time you feel that FRIEND may be of help to someone who comes to you for assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. There is, of course, no charge and all information received by FRIEND is held in the strictest confidence.

FRIEND is operative for personal callers at Centre on Monday & Friday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. Please try to let us know beforehand if someone is coming to see us. Address: Friend, Centre, Broadley Terrace, London NW1
