Tandem provides one-to-one befriending outside of the home to people in the immediate Oxford area who have been through a period of mental ill-health and are looking to rebuild their lives. We also run a weekly social group that has outings to local places of interest. We regret that, at present we can only accept referrals of people living in, or very close to, Oxford. At present we have a number of people on our waiting list so are unlikely to be able to offer an immediate start for new referrals.
Giving a bit of your time to help others who are struggling
can both make a real difference and also be enjoyable.

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.
