Tandem’s Home Page

Tandem provides one-to-one befriending outside of the home to people in the Oxford area who have been through a period of mental ill-health and are looking to rebuild their lives. We are currently supporting around 20 befriending partnerships on a weekly basis.

We are now recruiting volunteers in order to set up new partnerships. See our About Tandem page to see what partnerships can do for people.

Tandem Social Group

In addition to our individual partnerships, some of our befriendees and befrienders participate in a weekly social group that goes to various places of interest in the local area.

Here is an example on what the group did in one month.
